Repost: President Rodrigo Duterte Declares Break from US in Military, Economics

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday declared that he was breaking the Philippines' military and economic alliance with the United States, the country's longtime ally.

Duterte made the remark before Chinese government officials and business leaders who attended the Philippines-China Trade and Investment Forum.

With the "separation" from the US, Duterte said he would now be relying on the Chinese officials and businessmen.

"I announce my separation from the United States both in the military but economics also. So please you have another problem of economics in my country," Duterte said.

"I have separated from them so I will be dependent on you for a long time but don't worry we will also help," he added.

Duterte said he also planned to visit Russia and firm up ties with Moscow.

"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.

Duterte over the past months stepped up his anti-US rhetoric after US officials, including US President Barack Obama expressed concern over the alleged extrajudicial killings blamed on his war on drugs.

The President also announced that October's joint military exercises with the US would be the last under his term.

$13.5 billion

Duterte made his comments in China, where he is visiting with at least 200 business people to pave the way for what he calls a new commercial alliance as relations with longtime ally US deteriorate.

His trade secretary, Ramon Lopez, said $13.5 billion in deals would be signed

Duterte's efforts to engage China, months after a tribunal ruling in the Hague over South China Sea disputes in favor of the Philippines, marks a reversal in foreign policy since the 71-year-old former mayor took office on June 30.

China has pulled out all the stops to welcome Duterte, including a marching band complete with batton-twirling band master at his official welcoming ceremony outside the Great Hall of the People, which most leaders do not get.

President Xi Jinping, meeting Duterte earlier in the day, called the visit a "milestone" in ties.

Xi told Duterte that China and the Philippines were brothers and they could "appropriately handle disputes", though he did not mention the South China Sea in remarks made in front of reporters.

"I hope we can follow the wishes of the people and use this visit as an opportunity to push China-Philippines relations back on a friendly footing and fully improve things," Xi said.

Following their meeting, during which Duterte said relations with China had entered a new "springtime", Chinese vice foreign minister Liu Zhenmin said the South China Sea issue was not the sum total of relations.

"The two sides agreed that they will do what they agreed five years ago, that is to pursue bilateral dialogue and consultation in seeking a proper settlement of the South China Sea issue," Liu said.

China claims most of the energy-rich South China Sea through which about $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year. Neighbors Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims.

In 2012, China seized the disputed Scarborough Shoal and denied Philippine fishermen access to its fishing grounds.

Liu said the shoal was not mentioned and he did not answer a question about whether Philippine fishermen would be allowed there. He said both countries had agreed on coastguard and fisheries cooperation, but did not give details.

Sea row takes backseat

Duterte's tone toward Beijing is in contrast to the language he has used against the United States, after being infuriated by U.S. criticism of his bloody war on drugs.

On Wednesday, to the cheers of hundreds of Filipinos in Beijing, Duterte said Philippine foreign policy was veering towards China.

"I will not go to America anymore. We will just be insulted there," Duterte said. "So time to say goodbye my friend."

Duterte had said the South China Sea arbitration case would "take the back seat" during talks, and that he would wait for the Chinese to bring up the issue rather than doing so himself.

Xi said issues that could not be immediately be resolved should be set aside, according to the Chinese foreign ministry.

China has welcomed the Philippines approaches, even as Duterte has vowed not to surrender any sovereignty to Beijing, which views the South China Sea Hague ruling as null and void.

China has also expressed support for his drug war, which has raised concern in Western capitals about extrajudicial killing.

Duterte's overtures to China have been accompanied by signs of improving business ties with the world's second largest economy.

China's Liu said Beijing will restore Philippine agricultural exports to China and provide financing for Philippine infrastructure. —NB/JST, GMA News with Reuters

    1. I know it happens, pero it's rarer now compared to the 70's. mas marami pang kapwa Filipino na nag aabuse ng babae at transgender compared sa very few cases ng Americans. I just hope Duterte made the right decision. I feel bad for the Filipinos who's currently awaiting their US visas (working, student, tourist, permanent), because let's face it, with this statement that Duterte made, all those papers in processing will be affected. will be slower for sure or even get denied. Duterte may be planning something good, but we're not gonna feel the effects of those right away. andyan pa ren yung mga tao na gusto mangibang bansa. let's hope that whatever he has planned will work out in the end...

    6. This kind of mentality is one of the reasons why Philippines remains a poor country. A country's progress doesn't depend entirely on alliances. Regardless of how much benefits you get from such alliances but the government itself is corrupt and self serving, then the country will not prosper. Hence, to blame the so called lack of progress in the Philippines to the US, is preposterous.

Mabalik ako sa tourists, tourists ang main reason sa pag unlad ng isang bansa (now, do your own reserach kung gusto mo ibalik ang question na "how & why") hope this will clear your mind.

    3. Sabi nga nila bakit kasali ang US sa war pero never sa US nagaganap. Ang US at China may friction na ang dalawa. Lalo na kung si Trump ang manalo kawawa tayo kasi magagalit ang China sa kanya. Kasi gusto niya ata tanggalin ang mga business ng America sa China. Hindi naman ganon kadali kasi may utang din sila sa China. If Trump or China declares war nasa gitna tayo. Kung umalis ang US military sa atin hindi sa atin magaganap.

Mabuti na yun kaysa magkagalit si Trump at Duterte.

  49. Wait. So he decided to cut ties with the US, but instead be allies with two countries who are known communists and lack human rights for their own people. Good luck to your LGBT community. You get killed and harassed in Russia for being one. Might as well the US takes its companies out of there. What's the point if he doesn't want to be allies with us? We can take those jobs and bring them somewhere else. Better start praying your prez has jobs lined up for all of you who work for American companies. Goodluck trying to get visas to come over here to work. Better pray that they're willing to help you out during times of calamity. Did he even make this decision with his whole government or by himself. Where is the democracy? You really think China won't try to grab more land from the Philippines? Highly doubt it.
