“Naisip ko, wala naman tayong magagawa dito sa China, might as well make friends with them,” he said. “And the nearest na makatulong kung mag-upakan, patayan, will be China. And China said, ‘we will be there.’”

Duterte blamed his predecessor, former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III and the United States (US) for failing to stop China's reclamation and militarization in the disputed West Philippine Sea.

He scored Aquino for not giving enough action after the Philippines secured a legal victory over China at the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

Recent reports comes out that China has deployed high powered missiles in three Philippine-claimed reefs in the Spratlys.

The President also blamed US for its inaction when China has started the reclamation activities in the disputed territory. 

"You (US) were already around. I'm sure seven or eight years ago, there were already intelligence reports over flights by so many countries, including ours, that something was afoot there, that they were (China) trying to build reclamation."
