“Kaya ko ‘yan sila minumura kasi they do not know how to respect sovereignty. That’s the reason why hindi totoo ‘yung sinabi ng British na hindi sila nag – walang offer,” President Rodrigo Duterte said regarding the European Union, during his visit to BJMP Annex Building, Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City on October 18.
“Magbigay ka ng in a form of assistance or grant, the Philippines is given this amount but at the same time, i-specify nila na para ito sa Bureau of Fire kasi magbigay sila ng truck,” he said. “Pero, gusto nila bilihin mo ‘yung truck sa kanila.”
“Mga style na – Kaya ganun na lang ang tingin ko diyan sa EU,” he added.
“Kailangan natin aid. Pero kung ganun lang naman, tuturan ka kung paano gawin tapos ‘yung they begin to sukit-sukit – ‘yung try to examine the papers, ‘yung pedantry. ‘Yung kung anoano na lang ang,” he said.
“Sinabi ko: Wag na. Tutal, mabubuhay din naman tayo and we cannot be forever depending on aid. That’s very stupid of some public officials to talk of aid as if it is a matter of survival of our country if we do not accept it,” he said.
