Duterte on Balikatan: Basta ayaw ko

Jun. 05, 2007

From Sun.Star Davao:

AFTER years of explaining why he refuses to let Davao City host the joint military exercises between Filipino and American soldiers, now City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte apparently no longer wants to explain why.

“Basta ayaw ko! (I dont like it and thats it),” he told reporters when asked why despite alleged intercession by a Cabinet member to allow the Balikatan exercises to be held in Davao, he still doesn’t want to have them here.
