De Lima said, PHL, China, Russia against the world, “malaking kahibangan” (o baka siya ang nahihibang?)
On Friday, Senator Leila de Lima criticized the recent pronouncement of President Duterte , saying Philippines will join forces with China and Russia.
In a women’s right forum in Quezon City, Senator De Lima said that the plan of President Duterte is crazy.
“Ano na naman yung sinasabi na it’s the Philippines, China and Russia against the world? Malaking kahibangan!”. De Lima said.
President Duterte in his state visit to China, claimed that he wants to meet with Russian President to push closer ties.
“I realign myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin. There are three of us against the world. China, Philippines, Russia,” Duterte said.
Senator De Lima gave her quick statements against President Duterte pronouncement.
“Ano kayang meron sa China, na kung anong pag-aaway at pagmumura ang ginagawa ng Pangulong Duterte sa mga bansang nagmamalasakit sa atin ay sobra-sobra naman ang kabaitan niya sa China kahit na inaangkin nila an gating teritoryo?”
According to De Lima, President Duterte should consult first the Filipino before he makes a move.
“It’s an earth-shaking announcement. Wala man siyang respeto sa atin, n asana nagpaalam muna siya atin bago niya i-announce yun sa ibang bansa,” De Lima said.
“It is because of this that I am deeply concerned that the president’s foreign policy and pronouncements, especially yung kakasabi pa lang niya sa China,” She added.
