DUTERTE slams PM TRUDEAU for withholding sale of 16 "Bell 412 worth $233M"








President Rodrigo Duterte slammed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for withholding the purchase of 16 units of Bell 412 at a total cost of $233 million. He criticized when Trudeau discontinued the sale of military equipment amid concerns that the aircraft would be used to fight rebels.

"If you cannot understand you should not be there in that mighty post of yours. Because you do not know the history of the world and geopolitics."

Duterte called Canada's decision "stupid" and said further that the purchase would mean saving lives of Filipinos living in the most conflicted areas in the Philippines or in the middle of the war zone.





Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said that they are on-looking for South Korea, Russia, China, and Turkey as the potential new supplier of the helicopters.
