- Villar also thanked her supporters in Bacolod
Senator Cynthia Villar supported the opinion of President Rodrigo Duterte over the collision between a Filipino and Chinese vessel in Reed Bank.
KAMI learned that Villar was also waiting for the result of the investigation to know the next steps that the government could do.
"Ang opinyon po ni President maliit na incident lang daw 'yun na hindi dapat makaapekto sa relationship natin with China," Villar said, as reported by the ABS-CBN News (author Nico Delfin).
“We will see kasi magre-report sila on what really happened and if it's just a small incident then maybe these fishermen can be helped and that would solve the problem,” she added.
Villar made the remark during the 81st Charter Day celebration in Bacolod. She attended the event as a guest of honor and she also thanked those who supported her.
In a report by KAMI earlier, President Duterte said that the ramming incident was just a “maritime incident.” He added that people should not make things worse and just wait for the result of the investigation.
