Duterte: Xi Jinping says Carpio gifted WPS islands to China
President Rodrigo Duterte now puts the blame on former Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio for surrendering control over islands in the West Philippine Sea to China.
Citing his dear friend President Xi Jinping, Duterte claimed that it’s actually the abogado who gave access to Beijing. Carpio has been blaming the Duterte administration for this.
“I know President Xi Jinping… unang kita namin sinabi ko na kaagad about our resources diyan sa West Philippine Sea. Sabi ko alam ko na may dalawang taong maingay. Sabi nga ni Xi Jinping na ‘ah alam namin.’ Iyong ‘yong dalawang si Albert pati si Carpio ang nagregalo sa amin niyang mga islands mo eh,” Duterte claimed during his late night public address.
Carpio said it was upon his advice that got the Aquino administration running to the Hague and securing the arbitral award in July 2016.
“Niregalo, namimigay ang mga p*****. Tapos you have the temerity to blame anybody for your… in diplomatic term, ‘faux pas,'” he added. “Tapos ako ang bintangan ninyo na it happened way back in year 2014 when the Philippine Coast Guard was ordered to retreat by… Ewan ko bakit.”
