Duterte jokes “Make PH as China’s province, they’re rich and we are free of everything”

“Make Philippines a province of China, I tell you we don’t have a problem anymore, It’s for free,” President Rodrigo Duterte joked during his speech at the 10th Biennial National Convention and 20th Founding Anniversary Celebration of the Chinese Filipino Business Club, Inc. (CFBCI).

His remarks brought laughter to the audience of Chinese-Filipino community including Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Zhao Jianhua. He revealed that during their meetings with the Chinese President Xi Jinping, there was an assurance that they will not build any buildings from the disputed islands. The exploration made recently was an agreement of two-third and one-third in the oil deposits in the contested islands.
