Locsin hits Palace: Why let China write contract to explore Philippine oil, gas?

Teddy Boy thinks that the draft of the country's agreement with China regarding the exploration of gas and oil in the Philippines should be drafted by Filipinos. On Twitter, he said: "Palace Com doesn’t care if it is a Chinese draft? I fu*k*n* care! A framework or architecture for gas and oil in our part of the sea demands the draft be MINE … MIO … FILIPINO."

This is his response to Panelo. Inquirer reports: Locsin made the remarks on Twitter as he rebuffed President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesperson, Salvador Panelo, who said on Tuesday that he did not care if Beijing drafted the agreement because Manila would review it anyway.
