      Isn’t this just a response to China’s claims? So that they can later compromise to go back to the current status quo and everyone can fuck off peacefully from claiming the entire sea?

      His foreign policy was just as bad. It was also recently revealed he made secret backdoor deals with China and sold out his own country for who knows what in exchange for allowing China to enroach territory in the disputed territory of the West Philippine Sea / South China Sea.

        That’s what the West thinks about Duterte?

        Damn. Y’all are so far off base it’s absurd. Talk to a Filipino one of these days.
