DA tasked to assist fishermen in Recto Bank incident
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol was tasked by the Duterte Administration to lead the government team in assisting a group of Filipino Fishermen who were abandoned and left floating in Recto Bank in West Philippine Sea after a Chinese vessel hit their boat.
Piñol said that he will do his best to fulfill this duty.
Yesterday, Piñol had a press conference on this matter and even invited one of the fishermen to his office.
This wasn’t stage-managed to fan a conflict between the Philippines and China, according to him.
“Stop the lies,” Piñol said.
