Duterte "All the planes and helicopters will have to be brand new"


President Rodrigo Duterte said he will no longer buy secondhand helicopters from United States because some of them crashed and he will only source brand new military equipment from up to 2 countries.

“I will no longer buy second hand helicopters from the Americans because the two – the three – one of the two crashed. What’s happening to these Americans,” Duterte told military troops during his visit to Marawi City on September 11.

He said the government paid for those aircraft. “So for me, everything has to be brand new. All the planes and helicopters will have to be brand new. Your guns, I want just one source for it,” he said.

“I’m not going to mention what country it is but it’s just two – two countries,” Duterte said.

“But the Chinese, has it arrived? Oh, I’ve found that. China has been very good to us, so I am grateful to them. In behalf of the – let’s give them a round of applause,” he added.

“Let’s thank them because everything that they gave us are of good quality, like the snipers. Was it good? At the very least, let’s all be thankful so that.”
