Duterte invokes  US defence treaty
Published on: Thursday, July 18, 2019

MANILA: President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said the United States government should enforce its Mutual Defense Treaty with the Philippines amid the maritime tension in the disputed West Philippine Sea.

“I’m calling now America. I’m invoking the RP-US pact. I would like America to gather all their 7th Fleet in front of China. I’m asking them now. I will join them,” he said.

“I will ride on the boat where admiral of the US. I will drag along Carpio and the rest. When the Americans say, we’re here now, ready, I will press them.”

“Maybe that would be the end of Palawan. Palawan may be devastated, occupied or their will be nuclear bombs. We will dry up. So nothing will grow here, we can just wait, just like a big hole coming our way, to suck us to eternity and then we can sing the ‘Mona Lisa.’ And they just lie there, and they die there,” he added.
