MetadataShow full item record
Pampanga Rep. Gloria Arroyo is not in favor of joint exploration in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) islands with China or other claimant countries. “I don’t know all the facts that are available to the current administration so I will not dare to make any recommendation. I keep that attitude because of my experience as president. There were so many people in the peanut gallery telling me what to do when they don’t have all the facts at their disposal,” Arroyo told reporters.
