President Rodrigo Duterte has been working on the relations between the Philippines and China ever since he sat into power.
“What kept us from China was not our own making. I will charter a new course,” said Duterte.
Recently, the PH President went to China for a 4-day state visit in which they will talk about the future affairs of the two countries.
In a video posted by the Presidential Communications of the Philippines, it featured the successful visit of Duterte in China.
The highlight of the video is when the Philippine flag was seen raised higher than the other 4 flags of China outside the hotel where Duterte stayed.
Many netizens interpreted the act as China giving the highest respect to the Philippines. They were also happy that Duterte is strengthening its ties with China.
Duterte announced recently that he will be separating from the United States to welcome a stronger relation with China. The PH President ever since has favored China than the US.
“I announce my separation from the US both in military... not in the social... in military, but in economics. I have separated from them so I will be dependent on you for a long time but don't worry we will also help,” Duterte announced.
