Kumpiyansa si Senador Ralph Recto na hindi madedehado ang Pilipinas sapinasok na oil exploration agreement sa pamahalan ng China.
Ayon sa senador, dapat na magtiwala ang lahat kina acting Chief Justice Antonio Car-pio at dating Deparment of ForeignAffairs (DFA) Sec. Alberto del Rosario na hind ipamimigay ang interes ng bansa sa ibang bansa.
“The seal of a good agreement from the two eminent experts bodes well for the eventu-al forging of a constitutionally-compliant venture that is economically benefit to us,”ayon sa senador .
Dagdag pa ng Senador “Because the memorandum that was signed respected our sovereignty,then the joint venture started off on the right foot, and not with the foot of one party pressed on the back of the other. It showed the way forward.”25
