‘Sabah is not in Malaysia’: Locsin tells US embassy

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodor Locsin, Jr., in a tweet, has told the United States Embassy in the Philippines that Sabah is not in Malaysia.

This is after the US embassy said in a Twitter post that United States Agency for International Development (USAID) donated 500 hygiene kits to the DSWD Region IX for use of returning Filipino repatriates from Sabah, Malaysia who arrived in Zamboanga City and Bongao, Tawi Tawi.

“Sabah is not in Malaysia if you want to have anything to do with the Philippines,” Secretary Locsin said.

“You better edit that announcement if you know what’s good for you,” he added.
