President Rodrigo R. Duterte assured a visiting United States congressional delegation that he “will not trade territorial rights to China.”
U.S. Senator Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut said the President also told their group that the UN arbitral court’s landmark decision favoring the Philippines in its case against China was non-negotiable.
According to Murphy, Duterte gave the assurance during a meeting in Malacañang Tuesday. (Elena Aben)
