Alejano said that Duterte should remember that the decision of the United Nations Permanent Court of Arbitration the solidified the Philippine’s claim over the disputed waters was released on July 12, 2016, already during the term of Duterte as President.

He added that when Duterte got the results of the decision, he pushed this away even if it could have benefited the Philippines. Also that he did not do anything about China’s violation of international law.



Also saying that it is an insult to the sovereignty of the Philippines because Duterte keeps on praising China amidst these issues.

"Kung magsalita man patungkol sa China ay puro puri naman sa kabila ng paulit-ulit na hindi pagrespeto nito sa ating soberanya," saad ni Alejano.

Alejano went on to say that when the expects of Duterte is not to blame former administrations, rather, standing up and supporting the protest of the Filipino people against the rise of militarization of China in the West Philippine Sea.

"Nasa pintuan na natin ang panganib pero imbes na umaksyon ang ating Pangulo para idipensa ang ating bansa ay sinisisi pa sa iba na sa palagay ko ay paghuhugas-kamay sa lumalalang banta sa ating national security."

He adds that the former administration has already done their job by pushing the ruling of the arbitration court, and now it is the Duterte administration’s responsibility to ensure that this ruling is followed through.

Ending his post, he says that this threat from China is infringing on the freedom of navigation of the Filipino in the West Philippine Sea. And that it is wrong to think that China will not use their military weapons against the country, and that it is wrong to simply follow the whims of China.

"Maling pag-iisip na hindi umano nakatutok sa atin ang mga kagamitang pandigma ng China. Maling pag-iisip na susunod ang China sa mga pahayaga nito gayong paulit ulit din namang iba ang ginagawa nito," saad ni Alejano.
