President Rodrigo Duterte acknowledged the vital role played by the former President Benigno Aquino III in the victory over the West Philippine Sea Case. He said at Camp Nakar in Lucena City last Thursday that we owe PNoy gratitude for giving us an ace card on the dispute with China. 

"Si President Aquino, he won for us the case kaya ako nagsabi , 'Maraming salamat po for giving usa the ace card.' It was who filed, it was upon his instructions."

He also shared a few advises made by the four former presidents on the National Security Council meeting in regards to handling China.

"During my watch, medyo dahan-dahan lang ako. Pag daanan mo sa init ng ulo, patay na. Your life is not something I can just throw away."

"Hayaan muna natin sila. Let Ramos navigate and maybe, when the final talks are there, tapos nagkaharap na kami, that will be the time na magkaprankahan na tayo," he further added noting his full confidence on the diplomatic skills of former President Ramos.
