Lacson on China: A true friend doesn’t sneak into PH with 5 warships


Is China a friend or a foe?

Senator Panfilo Lacson has cast doubt on the country’s friendship with China after the latter sneaked five warships into the local waters.

“A true friend doesn’t sneak into a neighbor’s territory with 5 warships, deliberately concealing identification and turning around only when detected unless there is malevolent intention. Mutual
respect defines true friendship,” he tweeted.

Authorities recently denounced the passage of five Chinese warships into local waters without informing the Philippine government. The ships, which passed through Sibutu Strait in Tawi-Tawi, reportedly tried to hide their identity by turning off their identification systems.
