The head of state noted that the Alliance with Washington has brought Manila to little avail. “Stay in my country has been used for your own benefit,” said Duterte.
He also added that he did not intend to visit the United States because its there waiting for some insults. According to Duterte, he was “fed up” the foreign policy that Washington is trying to dictate Manila.
