During the hearing of the Commission on Appointments (CA), Drilon feared that the 'insults' of Duterte could put in jeopardy the $3 billion official development assistance (ODA) fund the Philippines is getting from Western countries.
"The question that is in everybody's minds, in maintaining our independent foreign policy, do we have to insult our allies? And here you are talking about $3 billion in official development assistance," Drilon said.
"Eh pag araw-araw iniinsulto natin ang ating mga kaibigan, hindi ba ito maiilagay sa alanganin yung $3 billion na ito?" the senator added.
