With the Philippines and China supposedly friends, the Chinese military does not have to be “nasty” by threatening Filipinos conducting maritime patrols in the West Philippine Sea especially around the Spratlys where the Chinese had built and militarized artificial islands, President Duterte said. The President reiterated his call on the Chinese not to be hostile to Filipinos, at the convention of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago in Davao City last Friday. “You cannot create islands there and claim the sea. That is not an island. Artificial islands are not pro – are prohibited in the middle sea. That’s the rule there,” he said.
