Watch: DFA Sec. Teddy Locsin Expose the Lies of Sen. Trillanes About Oil Exploration MOU with China (Video)

The controversial senator and one of the critics of Pres. Rody Duterte, Sen. Antonio Trillanes was exposed anew as his alleged lies were debunked by no less than the Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Sec. Teddyboy Locsin Jr. during an exclusive interview with CNN's The Source hosted by Pia Hontiveros.


Sen. Trillanes was once again discredit on his alleged spreading of fake news after Secretary Locsin revealed the real and original Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the Philippines and China regarding the oil and gas explorations in the West Philippine Sea.



Secretary Teddyboy Locsin stated that Sen. Trillanes presented a bogus document in an effort to demonize President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during the landmark visit of People's Republic of China President Xi Jinping.

Watch How Sec. Locsin Expose the Lies of Trillanes:



The DFA Seretary junked a "Chinese draft" supposedly on the planned joint exploration of gas and oil between the Philippines and China in the disputed West Philippine Sea (WPS) which was first leaked by Sen. Trillanes to the media and became the hot topics of some mainstream journalist. Sec. Locsin disputed the fake news presented by Trillanes because he stressed that he personally wrote the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

Sec. Locsin flashed a copy of the MoU and presented it to veteran broadcaster and TV host of CNN's The Source, Pia Hontiveros. "When I wrote this draft, I did it myself. There's  supposed to be a Chinese draft, but the one Trillanes issued is not it." Locsin stated.



The Foreign Affairs Secretary explained that the "Chinese Draft" leaked by Trillanes looks very far from the Chinese draft shown to him. "There was a Chinese proposal, but it's (the one leaked by Trillanes) not it, not at all," Locsin said.

The MoU according to the Foreign Affairs Secretary stated that the Philippines and China agreed to uphold the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the Declaration of Conduct of Parties among claimant-countries.

“It’s with full awareness of the limitations that puts on what states can and cannot do in the area. And then the basic principle is, of course, mutual respect, fairness, mutual benefit, flexibility, pragmatism,” Locsin said.

He also pointed out the MoU was an “agreement to agree.”

“I will release this when I get permission from China, not that they’re asking me to get permission, but I think I owe it to China to have trust in me, implicitly, to write this, as I wanted it,” Locsin said.
