President Rodrigo Duterte said that he is willing to participate in a joint military exercise with China and Russia, following the abrupt ending of the US-PHL war games last week.

President Duterte made the confirmation during his interview with Hong Kong-based Phoenix Television before his four-day state visit to China on Tuesday.

According to President Digong, he is considering the joint military exercises with either China or Russia because the American troops were given ample time to “play” with the Filipino soldiers.

Duterte reiterated that there will no longer be any war games between the US and the Philippines during his term.
