FULL STATEMENT OF PRES.DUTERTE IN CHINA WHICH MEDIA AND ANTI-DUTERTE MISUNDERSTOOD! MUST READ!!!



President Rodrigo Duterte clarified that he will not sever the Philippines' ties with the United States despite an announcement of separating with the global superpower.

Duterte speech announcing separation with U.S.

"I, in this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States both in the military, not in social, both in military but economic," Duterte said, drawing applause from the crowd China

"So please, you have another problem of economics in my country. I am separated from them, so I will be dependent on you for all time. But do not worry. We will also help,"

"I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world - China, Philippines, and Russia. It's the only way," Duterte told his Beijing audience.

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

However, President Duterte said in Davao City that his earlier statement did not mean cutting diplomatic ties with the United States.
"As a separation, what I'm really saying is a separation of foreign policy," the president emphasized. "In the past and until I became president, we always followed what the United States would give the cue."
Duterte also indicated that he has no plan to visit the U.S.

"You have to take my words in the context of what I've been saying all along. It's not the severance of ties because, in the severance of ties, you have to cut diplomatic relations. I cannot do that," Duterte said during a press conference in Davao City following his arrival from a state visit to Brunei and China.

He said Filipinos in the United States "would kill him" if he cuts the Philippines' diplomatic ties with the global superpower.

"It's not clear to us exactly what that means in all its ramifications," President Duterte said
President Duterte gave a series of comments to clarify those remarks.
"Sever is to cut. Separate is just to chart another way of doing,"  President Duterte said

 The 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."

A few hours after Duterte's speech, his top economic policymakers released a statement saying that, while Asian economic integration was "long overdue", that did not mean the Philippines was turning its back on the West.
"We will maintain relations with the West but we desire stronger integration with our neighbors," said Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez and Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia in a joint statement. "We share the culture and a better understanding of our region."

Meanwhile, The White House said on Thursday the Philippine government has not officially asked to end any security or economic ties between the U.S. and Manila.
"We have not received any official requests from Filipino officials to alter any of our many issues where we bilaterally cooperate," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters during a briefing.

"The U.S.-Philippines alliance is built on a 70-year history, rich people-to-people ties, including a vibrant Filipino-American diaspora, and a long list of shared security interests,"
"We also remain one of the Philippines' strongest economic partners; the current stock of U.S. foreign direct investment stands above $4.7 billion."

President Rodrigo Duterte wanted to clarify on what he said in goodbye US. is the separation of foreign policy because in the past we always followed what the United States would give the cue,
as President Duterte  explained further that "You have to take my words in the context of what I've been saying all along. It's not the severance of ties because, in the severance of ties, you have to cut diplomatic relations. I cannot do that,"
