Chinese government goes back on its word all the time it refuses to fulfill its treaty obglations when it's inconvient to them so their the same as Duterte if not worse

CHINA'S ECONOMIC DEAL WITH THE PHILIPPINES IS WORTH $24 BILLION US DOLLARS, WHILE JAPAN'S ECONOMIC DEAL WITH THE PHILIPPINES IS NOT WORTH EVEN $2 BILLION DOLLARS, LESS THAN 10% THAT OF CHINA.  CHINA UNILATERALLY ALLOWED FILIPINO FISHERMEN TO FISH AT HUANGYAN SHOAL AD LIB.  THESE ARE GIFTS OF TRUST AND FRIENDSHIP THAT SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED, OR BE TREATED AS CHINA'S TRIBUTE TO THE PHILIPPINES BECAUSE OF THE PHILIPPINES' NEWFOUND POWER OF SORTS.  TO SUGGEST THAT CHINA LOST IS TO REPAY FRIENDSHIP WITH INSULT AND CHARITY WITH INJURY.  BUT THE WAY DUTERTE SEEMS TO BE CONDUCTING HIMSELF ON HIS RETURN SUGGESTS THAT HE MIGHT HAVE BELIEVED CHINA WAS AFRAID OF HIM AND NEEDED TO CURRY FAVOR FROM HIM.  THESE DEALS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL, BUT AT LEAST CHINA CREATED THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PHILIPPINES TO MAKE USE OF ITS CAPITAL TO JUMPSTART SO MANY PROJECTS THAT IT COULD NOT HAVE DONE WITH ITS OWN RESOURCES.  TO TELL CHINA TO GET JEALOUS BECAUSE DUTERTE IS IN LOVE WITH ABE DOES NOT WORK.  ANYONE IN CHINA WHO KOWTOWS TO THE PHILIPPINES WILL BECOME A LAUGHING STOCK AT THE DINING TABLE.  AS MANILA KNOWS, THESE MEMORANDA OF UNDERSTANDING ARE NOT BINDING CONTRACTS YET.  WHEN THE UNDERSTANDING OF GOODWILL IS GONE, ALL THE LOANS MAY LACK ENOUGH COLLATERALS TO GUARANTEE REPAYMENT OF PRINCIPAL.

IN FACT, CHINA SHOULD CONTINUE TO PATROL THE HUANGYAN REEF AND ESTABLISH A PERMANENT BASE ON IT, EVEN IF IT ALLOWS FILIPINO FISHERMEN TO FISH ALL THEY WANT AROUND IT.  THERE IS NO REASON FOR CHINA TO SHIRK ESTABLISHING ITS SOVEREIGNTY ON AN ISLAND THAT WAS CLEARLY EXCLUDED FROM THE OFFICIAL MAP OF THE PHILIPPINES ON ITS INDEPENDENCE.  ALL THIS TALK ABOUT "ENSURING CHINA DOES NOT COME BACK" IS BACK-STABBING BEHAVIOR UNWORTHY OF THE MOST BASIC LEVEL OF HONESTY.
