‘Hindi ka ba naiiyak Pilipinas’: Lacson on finger pointing amid Chinese intrusion

News

“Isn’t it sad and ironic that the WPS issue has degenerated into a finger pointing argument between ex-Justice Carpio and PRRD and not between the Philippines and China? Hindi ka ba naiiyak Pilipinas?” Senator Ping Lacson posted this on Twitter April 30.

In an interview with DZXL, the senator said “ang irony nito at nakakalungkot, sa halip na magtulong-tulong tayong mga Pilipino, especially mga leaders, tayo pa nag-aaway-away sa usaping West Philippine Sea.”

“Dapat iisa ang position natin. Yan ang nagpapakita ng weakness natin sa China,” he added.

The senator added that COVID-19 vaccine should be a separate issue from territorial integrity and national sovereignty.

“Dapat magsimula tayo na nagkakaisa tayo na dapat ipaglaban natin ang ating sovereignty and territorial integrity. Dapat walang kinalaman ang bakuna sa usaping territorial integrity and national sovereignty,” Lacson said.
