‘It will be bloody’ if Philippine territory breached, Duterte warns China – Asian Correspondent

THE Philippine president says he will walk the extra mile for peace but warns China “it will be bloody” if the militarily superior Asian neighbor infringes on his country’s territory.

In July, the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled that China had breached the Philippines’ sovereign rights by exploring resources in the South China Sea behind the “nine-dash-line”, also blaming Beijing for causing permanent, irreparable harm to Spratlys’ coral reef ecosystem.

President Rodrigo Duterte issued the warning Wednesday in comments on the Philippines’ territorial disputes with China in a speech before troops at an army camp east of Manila.
