SEPARATION – The recent remark of Pres. Rodrigo ‘Rody’ Duterte during his state visit to China that mentioned about the separation of the Philippines from the United States has sparked a lot of headlines.
In the previous months, the Philippines’ relationships with other nations have undeniably been challenged. The territorial dispute between Philippines and China has raised tensions between the two countries.
It even led to the Arbitral Court that gave the decision on the ownership of the disputed territories – with the Court siding on the Philippines. On the other hand, China has not recognized the verdict.
Philippines’ relationship with United States has also been challenged much. The recent tirades of Pres. Duterte to US Pres. Barack Obama have surprised the people.
