After Beijing warning, Philippines’ president cancelled visit to disputed island

After Beijing warning, Philippines’ president cancelled visit to disputed islandThe Philippines’ president, Rodrigo Duterte, has canceled a planned visit to an island the Philippines claims in the disputed the South China Sea after Beijing warned him against the visit.

This is reported by The Guardian.

The brash Philippine leader last week announced his plan to raise the Philippine flag in the island of Thitu, in the Spratlys chain, and fortify it with barracks, setting off alarm bells.

“Because of our friendship with China and because we value your friendship I will not go there to raise the Philippine flag,” Duterte said in a speech before the Filipino community in Riyadh late Wednesday.
