#THEPHILIPPINES: Pres. Duterte Threatens "Suicide Missions" Against Chinese Troops Over Disputed Island

[world politics news]

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has told China to “lay off” an island occupied by his country in the disputed South China Sea and said he would deploy his soldiers there on a "suicide mission" if China touches it.

Duterte’s remarks, which he said was not a warning but rather a word of advice to a friend, follow a statement made by the foreign affairs ministry calling the presence of more than 200 Chinese boats near Thitu Island illegal.
