Duterte not severing ties with U.S.

President Rodrigo Duterte cleared up his past articulation about the Philippines' division with the United states. As indicated by the president, he is not separating the ties, saying that it is in his nation's best to stay in contact with the U.S.

Duterte said: "When you say severance of ties, you cut the diplomatic relations. I cannot do that. Why? It's to the best interest of my country that we maintain that relationship."

Notwithstanding, Duterte still said amid a discourse in Davao City that he will never go to U.S. for wfor the rest of his life.

"I announce my separation from the United States both in the military but economics also. So please you have another problem of economics in my country."

As per the president, what he implied with the partition with U.S. was closure a Philippine foreign policy which was inclined nearly toward the U.S. 

Prior to the president's visit to China, Duterte expressed a few affirmations about checking the nation's security engagements with the U.S. for example, the evacuation of American counterterrorism constrains in the south of the nation and contradicting the joint watches in the South China Sea with the U.S. Naval force. 

Duterte likewise tries to stop the joint battle practices that occur every year which the Philippines hosted alongside the U.S. military that China opposes.

The spokesman of the U.S. Stat Department John Kirby said that U.S. would elucidate the "separation" comment of President Duterte.
