The tough-talking President of the Philippines, Pres. Rody Duterte lashes out at the Western countries particularly members of the European Union as well as the United Stats for their alleged "double talks" and wants closer ties with Russia and China.

Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "I have nothing against America [US President Donald] Trump is my friend, But my foreign policy has shifted. I want to deal with China and Russia. Because in Western world, it's double talk," he said.

The Philippine President is expected to arrive in Russia for a five-day state visit this coming May 22, 2017.

Pres. Duterte also noted during the interview with RT that the US treat the Philippines as if it's their colony despite being an independent country.


The President stated that "You treat me as if I'm your colony still. You must be kidding! We're an independent country. I want my country to be treated with dignity," he added.

The former mayor of Davao City has repeatedly expressed his desire to have countries such as China and Russia to provide military hardware for the Philippines.

During his visit to Russia, Pres. Duterte is expected to sign an agreement with the former Soviet Union to purchase arms without any conditions.

Pres. Duterte also noted that he will not leave the Philippines national security dependent on Washington.

"If my country collapses, who will bring it back? The US? We need weapons," Pres. Duterte said. "Russia sells weapons, no conditions. With the US it's a different story. They make conditions. But I'm not gonna stand on bended knees.
