The 71 year of age President is presently in China on a 3 day state trip intended to make safe investment of billions of dollars and to mend relations by way of the 2nd biggest economy of the world.

In return for its back in his battle on drugs, Beijing anticipates Duterte to back off as of a long-running disagreement over uncertain areas in South China Sea.

Duterte has condemned the US from the time he come to power, calling the President of US, Barack Obama “son of a whore” and saying to him to “go to hell”.

In the coming future, “I will break up by way of America”, Duterte stated in a latest speech in Manila. “I would relatively go to China and to Russia.”
