Duterte claims China threatened war in South China Sea if Philippines drills for oil

Beijing threatened the Philippines with war if Manila pressed its claims over the disputed South China Sea islets and drilled for oil in the area, according to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

Duterte produced his seemingly sensational comments while delivering a speech at the National Convention of the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary in Davao City. The Philippine president recalled Monday conversation with China's President Xi Jinping regarding the disputed areas of the South China Sea and explained why he abstained from pressing the claims.

"I really said, 'It's ours. I'd like you to listen for a while.' I said, 'Mr. Xi Jinping, I would insist that that is ours and I will drill oil there,'" Duterte said.
