- Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla calls Senator Trillanes a ‘destroyer’ and says Vice President Binay shouldn’t bother facing him in a debate.

One corruption charge after another... what’s next for Vice President Jejomar Binay?
His spokesperson, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, says the vice president will focus on getting his job done instead of getting caught in verbal battles.
JONVIC REMULLA, SPOKESPERSON, VICE PRESIDENT JEJOMAR BINAY: Cooler heads intervened. He said – nagpakalalaki siya eh. He said, sige, ituloy na natin ito. (He said he manned up and agreed to the debate.) But the greater sense of responsibility to serve the country took over, and the inner voice in him said it’s better to go to work than do this thing.
Remulla hits Binay’s critic Senator Antonio Trillanes… calling him a “destroyer.”
REMULLA: He has destroyed Makati, the institution of the military, he’s been destroying everything his whole life. In the 7 years as senator, what does he have to show? He’s the Yolanda of senators. It’s a path of destruction wherever he goes.
On Tuesday President Benigno Aquino also hit Binay’s critics in the Senate telling them to stop making allegations "in dribs and drabs."
Despite a promise to bring up recent acts of aggression with China at this year’s ASEAN summit hosted by Myanmar, Philippine president Benigno Aquino seemed to look for common ground in a chat with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Communication Secretary Sonny Coloma Coloma says Aquino and Chinese President Xi had a "warm" conversation about “pursuing the peaceful path” in the maritime disputes between the two countries.
But Coloma says, the case the Philippines filed against China stays.

After a ten-year journey in space, an unmanned probe will make history as it lands on a speeding comet's rocky surface.

Tourism officer Ben Jimena says Iloilo attracts 10% foreign visitors and 90% local visitors.
What will they see here? A place rich in heritage and history.
Jimena says Iloilo taps into its rich history to brand itself as an old heritage city.
BEN JIMENA, ILOILO CITY TOURISM OFFICER: History is an important factor that would make people appreciate the place. Without history as an anchor it’s very difficult to appreciate a place.
