President Rodrigo Duterte said he wants the Armed Forces of the Philippines to have transport helicopters in two to three years.
“Ewan ko ba ‘yung – ano ko itong every time na sana paglabas ninyo sa kampo, in about a few kilometers – na-a-ambush,” Duterte told the military during the groundbreaking ceremony of Scout Ranger Ville in Bulacan on October 11.
“Konsumido ako talaga diyan,” he said.
“If I could just, if I had the money, bibili na lang ako ng mga chopper na transport,” the President added. “But we are short now this year.”
“Probably, magdasal kayo, in about the next two, three years, I can buy those choppers. You have to go by air because dito kasi half – wala talaga,” he noted.
“I’m almost close to desperation ‘pag makita ko ‘yung ganun ang nangyari,” President Duterte added.
