    For the second time in a week, President Rodrigo Duterte rebuked China for its “nasty” warnings against Philippine planes flying near Beijing’s artificial islands in the South China Sea, including those claimed by Manila.

    The President was referring to the Chinese Navy’s menacing radio messages to Philippine military pilots.

    “You know very well that we will not attack anybody there and we are a claimant of the group of islands,” he said in a speech on Friday night in Davao City.

    “I told you we are not prepared to go to war with you, so why do you have to say those nasty words? There’s no need for that. We are your friend,” he added.
