Duterte allows Malaysia, Indonesia to pursue terrorists in PHL waters

News

“I will allow troops of Indonesia and Malaysia to come in if they are pursuing a lead na – and they would think that they are able,” President Rodrigo Duterte said during a briefing upon his arrival from India.

The President was talking about terrorism and piracy in waters of southern Philippines that borders with Malaysia and Indonesia.

“Just inform the Armed Forces about it. Or we can be of assistance, a joint. If it is joint operation, you bring along my soldiers because ‘yan ang isang sabi ko,” President Duterte said.

He noted that this is during hot pursuit in the seas.

“Sinabi ko pagka terorista, my advice to them is just blow them up. And that’s my order to, my suggestion to the meeting. Blow them up. Kaya huwag ka magpa-hostage diyan kay baka kasali ka doon sa blowing up,” Duterte said.
