In the Chinese Sohu: Joint exercises with the US Navy in the Philippines announced after the "disappearance" of President Duterte

21

In the Chinese press, material is released, which discusses the joint exercises of the US Navy and the Philippines. A few days ago, statements were made in the United States in which it was openly stated that the exercises were anti-Chinese in nature. In particular, it was pointed out that the United States "will continue to provide assistance to its allies, preventing China from occupying the disputed archipelagos in the South China Sea." First of all, we are talking about the Spratly archipelago, which is called Nansha in China.


It is important to note that a few months ago, Beijing and Manila discussed the possibility of joint economic activities in the archipelago, which seriously eased tensions between the two countries, which took place precisely in connection with disputes over the ownership of the archipelago.

The Chinese media noted that it was Beijing's constructive dialogue with the Philippine authorities that irritated Washington. There, according to the PRC, they are making every effort to drive a wedge back into relations between the Philippines and China.

At the same time, the Sohu portal discusses an issue that attracts attention. The Chinese author writes that Manila's relations with Beijing suddenly deteriorated sharply, noting - "for no objective reason." In the military-thematic section of the Chinese information resource:

Noteworthy is the fact that since the end of March there has been no information about the President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte. He last performed in public on March 29th. On April 7, he was supposed to make a planned televised address, but the event was canceled for unknown reasons. This is an extremely rare case.

The Chinese author writes about a strange coincidence: a joint exercise with the US Navy in the Philippines was announced after the "disappearance" of President Duterte. Rumors about the "disappearance" of President Duterte have been circulating in the Philippines for at least a week.

Against this backdrop, Filipino Senator Christopher Go posted a post on social networks stating that Rodrigo Duterte is healthy. Guo posted images of the President of the Philippines playing golf and running around the presidential palace while playing sports. Previously it was assumed that Duterte could get sick. But the senator claims that everything is in order with the president at the moment.

Filipino media writes that Rodrigo Duterte announced his reluctance to get vaccinated against covid.

      There are anti-Chinese countries, and there are anti-American ones. There are also "hesitant" countries. The Philippines wants to "suck two queens"
      Alas, Rodrigo Duterte is not Hugo Chavez.

      Hello old man! The smoking-room is alive (I mean Duterte!) Yesterday, literally, he communicated with VVP via TLF. The agenda is different - from congratulations on the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations, to the improvement of ALL relations with the Russian Federation and, of course, the Sputnik-V vaccine. By the way, yesterday S. Lavrov agreed with the production of this vaccine in Iran.

    "First of all, we are talking about the Spratly archipelago, which is called Nansha in China." (C) Spratly-Hidden, Nansha-Nasha. What an interesting language, AdnAka ?! laughing And Rodrigo is not a fool for refusing. They will inject some pfizer or even that trenchant astrazenek and move the horses. Does he need it?

    And, against whom can the Yankees conduct exercises at the side of the Chinese, if not against the Chinese? And what the Chinese are surprised at when their trading partner number 1 introduces sanctions against Chinese companies, and new taxes on Chinese goods, and prepares to fight against trading partner number 2! !!

    preventing China from occupying the disputed archipelagos in the South China Sea

    And why the hangover did the Chinese generally decide that these were their islands, or live according to pirate laws, who is stronger is right?
    According to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, international arbitration concluded that these facilities are under the jurisdiction of the Philippines, and China cannot impede navigation, establish artificial islands there and carry out other actions that it carries out there.

    And there is also Vietnam and Malaysia .. This is a really controversial archipelago, not just one country ..

      WHAT IS - "international arbitration" - are the Americans with the British? Are there representatives of the Russian Federation or China itself in this "arbitration"?

    In the Philippines, an experiment was carried out on the drug administration of an entire country. In the United States, its first stage is being carried out - the whole country is sitting on light, mostly controlled drugs. It is prescribed by doctors and monitors the condition of the treated. Then the "patients" move on to the heavy one, which they take from street dealers, and start aging, quickly and efficiently.
    And in the Philippines, the second stage was underway - the entire working population was on hard drugs at once. Otherwise, it is simply not possible to endure the working day there - the owners, with a surplus of labor, set working days for 12-14 hours, seven days a week and at a pace of running. The man pulled as long as he could, and then he just died. No pension, no medicine, nothing is needed, just a dream! Under the foolishness, no disease is terrible, a person plows to the last, and then once - and leaned back.
    Duterte decided to save his homeland, no more, no less. And the people, of course, supported him. For this, Rodrigo Duterte will definitely be killed. Or have already been killed.

                  Yes ... Ring, dome, look around. That was a long time ago. It used to be that you wandered into the barracks at 3 o'clock in the morning, pulled off the blanket from the first soldier you came across and yelled: Ivanov! Come on! ... A soldier in a dream assumes the pose of "grouping", falls off the bed and like our father: 501, 502, 503, ring ... dome ... look around! "And only then wakes up. laughing And the old DOSAAF members had a different countdown - one bus, two bus, three bus laughing but in the army everyone was retrained for 501, 502, 503. In general, for those in the domes! drinks

        China began with this, fought for a long time, but won. Now he really won the "crown", just look at the statistics on it.
        Chinese company Sinovac Biotech will increase annual release of COVID-19 vaccine up to 2 billion doses... For this, the company built the third CoronaVac production line.
        According to the FT newspaper, in 2020, China invested 35 trillion yuan, or $ 5,4 trillion, in its own economy. almost 40% more than a year earlier.
        The economy of the Celestial Empire is the only economy in the world that has already emerged from the coronavirus crisis and completed 2020 + 3%... Growth in 2021 is projected at least 7,5% of GDP growth.

    Duterte is a strange man, he could have reversed, he often has conflicting positions and statements ..
