The Philippines can survive without getting financial aid from 18 nations that supported the United Nations’ resolution to investigate the bloody war on drugs.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. made this assertion after Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea ordered government agencies to suspend the signing of loans and grants with these foreign nations.

The latest Palace order was reached as a form of government protest of the Iceland-led resolution in the United Nations Human Rights Council calling for an inquiry into the alleged drug-related killings in the country.

“Good idea. We don’t need the money,” Locsin tweeted.

“We’ve more than enough without turning to anyone outside except Japan of course whose generosity is unconditional, quick; and whose motivation is honestly to help the Philippines. The rest are tongue in cheek and negligible,” he added.
