Implementing what he said back in October 2016

Duterte made the remarks in an interview broadcast on Monday, October 17, with Hong Kong-based Phoenix Television ahead of a 4-day visit to Beijing, which begins on Tuesday and is aimed at improving ties that soured over competing claims in the resource-rich South China Sea.

Asked if he would consider joint military exercises with China or Russia, Duterte said: "Yes, I will. I have given enough time for the Americans to play with the Filipino soldiers."

Asked if he would seek to buy military equipment from China during his visit, Duterte told Phoenix Television: "Yes, but not really in (large) numbers."

Duterte said he would also need small, fast attack boats from China to fight "terrorism".

"If China does not help us in this endeavor, we will have a hard time fighting terrorism," he said without elaborating.

WHAT ARE THE INTERNATIONAL ARMY GAMES? RUSSIA, CHINA, IRAN AND OTHERS KICK OFF COMBAT OLYMPICS
BY DAMIEN SHARKOV ON 7/28/18 AT 6:00 AM

https://www.newsweek.com/what-are-international-army-games-russia-china-iran-and-others-kick-combat-1045765

Russia has launched its fourth annual International Army Games, which will pit its troops against China, India, Iran and from 28 other countries in a spectator sports version of warfare on land, sea and in the air.

The competition, which Russia has gradually expanded, will go on for two weeks and include heavy-duty events such as the marquee tank biathlon and fighter jet maneuvering contest Aviadarts, but also smaller scale competitions such as a service dog race or a field kitchen cook-off. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has hailed this year’s installment of the games as the biggest yet, as Russia will share hosting duties with six other countries and welcome 181 teams from the participating states.

“This is almost a third more than last year,” Shoigu said when announcing the final roster for the event last month. “For the first time service personnel from Algeria, Vietnam, Sudan, Myanmar, Pakistan and the Philippines will show their mastery,” he told Russian state news.
