Cayetano Condemns Gilas’ Vengeful Win Against China


Manila – Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano vented to the media his intense disapproval over the surprising win of Gilas Pilipinas against China at the start of the 2017 FIBA Asia, calling it a provocation in the peaceful harmony between the two friendly countries.

“Is your objective to shame China or confront them, or is your objective peace and stability between our two nations?” asked Cayetano.

The Gilas Pilipinas team scored a 96-87 win against the defending champions with Terrence Romeo bringing the team to a shocking win.

“It’s almost as if this win was ill-founded,” added Cayetano, later hinting at launching an investigation on the final score of the game.
