Baka maging teritoryo na tayo ng China! Sereno warns Duterte about getting too close to Xi
Ousted chief justice Maria Lourdes Sereno has reminded President Rodrigo Duterte to keep the country’s territory intact.
“We as a nation, especially our President, should not forget what is most important to Filipinos – love of God, freedom and dignity of every human being, preservation of the Philippines for Filipinos,” said Sereno in a statement on Wednesday (Nov. 21).
“China opposes and crushes those values,” she stressed.
The ousted chief justice said this following the state visit of China’s President Xi Jinping and in the face of the ongoing territorial disputes over the West Philippine Sea.
“Why the closeness to China and the repudiation of our international friends who share these values?” asked Sereno.
“Don’t negate who we are as a people, Mr. President,” she reminded Duterte.
