The president claimed that he was invoking the Geneva Convention and threatened that if a single landmine incident will be reported after his announcement, he will call off the peace process and order the government peace panel to come home.
He also said that he will order the Armed Forces of the Philippines to use anti-personnel explosives against the rebels and that he was even willing to buy “a shipload” of them.
Duterte claimed that if the fight with the communists would continue, he will approve the request to recruit 20,000 additional troops by the Department of National Defense.
“You stop and we talk or you continue and we fight” he said, claiming that he did not care should the fight against communists continue for another 45 years.
