“We can survive but actually our attitude should be, we must survive. Ang pagpaplano ng buhay ng bansa, dapat hindi naka-plano yan na merong MCC na nagbibigay o nagpapautang sa atin. Dapat even without MCC,” he said.

Pimentel said if the US really wants to help the Philippines, they should do it without any conditions.

He also said the the cancellation of the $430 grant from the US agency, Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), due to Washington’s concern on extrajudicial killings under Duterte should not have an impact on the country.


“Siguro sayang na may $430M na pwede natin ma access. Pero kung yung gustong magpahiram o magpautang eh ang daming satsat, ang dami- daming conditions, eh di wala na tayong meeting of the minds. Wala na tayong interest dun. Okay na po yun (na hindi natuloy),” he said.


“Parang nasa menu lang yan na hindi mo na lang pinili. Tanungin natin mga kababayan natin, ano ba ang proyekto ng MCC na alam nila at naramdaman nila ang benepisyo sa kanilang buhay? Tingnan natin ilan ang nakakasagot nyan? Hindi ganun kalaki ang impact sa buhay natin kaya ‘wag na natin masyadong gawing issue yan. Hindi ganyan kahalaga yan,” Pimentel said.

“Dapat kaya nating tumayo sa sarili nating mga paa,” he added.
