Philippines’ Top Diplomat Tells China to “GET THE F**K OUT” of Their Territory

The Phillipines’ top diplomat, foreign minister Teodoro Locsin, demanded in a Monday tweet that China “GET THE FUCK OUT” of their territorial waters.

In response to the ‘illegal’ presence of hundreds of Chinese boats parked inside the Philippines 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), Locsin tweeted:

“China, my friend, how politely can I put it? Let me see… O…GET THE FUCK OUT. What are you doing to our friendship? You. Not us. We’re trying. You.”

Locsin’s screed then veers into a strange analogy involving a uterus and giving birth to a ball of crap.

China’s embassy in Manila did not respond to a Reuters request for comment, but officials have previously said the vessels parked at the disputed Whitsun Reef were fishing boats taking refuge from rough seas.

China claims almost the entire South China Sea, through which about $3 trillion of ship-borne trade passes each year. In 2016, an arbitration tribunal in The Hague ruled the claim, which Beijing bases on its old maps, was inconsistent with international law.

In a statement on Monday, the Philippine foreign ministry accused China’s coast guard of “shadowing, blocking, dangerous manoeuvres, and radio challenges of the Philippine coast guard vessels.” -Reuters

Locsin defended his comments, saying “I get things done, my point across crystal.”

On Sunday, the Phillipines announced that it would continue maritime exercises in its EEZ despite a Chinese demand that it stop actions which could ‘escalate disputes.’

Meanwhile, the Phillipines has filed 78 diplomatic protests to China since President Rodrigo Duterte took office in 2016, according to Reuters, citing foreign ministry data.

“Our statements are stronger too because of the more brazen nature of the activities, the number, frequency and proximity of intrusions,” Marie Yvette Banzon-Abalos, executive director for strategic communications at the foreign ministry, said.
