Duterte: Chinese vessels near Pagasa part of "geopolitics"

This is a cheap "cop-out", implying that it's like the rain...it's something you normally can't do anything about it, so therefore it's something not that urgent.  ::)

Chinese vessels near Pag-asa part of geopolitics, Duterte says

    MANILA, Philippines — Addressing concerns over the presence of Chinese ships in the vicinity of Pag-asa Island in the West Philippine Sea, President Rodrigo Duterte said the vessels are not directed at the country.
    He added the Philippines will not allow China to occupy the island, which is part of Palawan.

    The military earlier confirmed that hundreds of Chinese vessels, believed to be part of Beijing's maritime militia, have been swarming in the area of Pag-asa Island since January.
