Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano defended again the Duterte Administration's War on Drugs during his speech in an event at the Asia Society in New York City, USA on September 21, 2017.

The DFA Chief Western countries always react with use of the word 'war' when this is actually a "rule of law campaign" aimed at taking out power from drug lords and narco-politicians and putting it back to law enforcement and the courts.

“We refuse to just watch and do nothing as the Philippines becomes a narco state and as we lose a whole generation to narcotics,” Cayetano said in his remarks.

Speaking before an international audience lyesterday, the foreign affairs chief also addressed concerns on Manila’s claims and entitlements to the West Philippine Sea or South China Sea.

Naming the issue as the “Panda in the room,” Cayetano said the Philippines has in fact strengthened and not abandoned its claims.

“There is a change in strategy and framework but no change in fighting for our sovereignty and sovereign rights,” he said.

In his remarks, Cayetano likewise discussed the current state of Manila’s relations with Washington, by addressing what he called “the Eagle in the room”.

Cayetano said he is the perfect example of the enduring warm and old friendship between the Philippines and the United States because his mother is American.

While the two countries shall remain friends under the administration of President Duterte, the top Filipino diplomat said there is recalibration or recasting of Philippine-US relations under the independent foreign policy thrust of the Duterte administration.

The secretary explained that the Philippines and the US share common values and interests, but these are not necessarily always identical.
