    In a media briefing on Monday, Panelo said the survey result was “understandable,” noting that the United States and the Philippines have been long-time allies.

    “We’ve been used to the United States being our ally. Mas sanay tayo sa America. As we go along at nakita na ‘yung sincerity ng China with respect to agreements between the two countries, eh baka mabago ang kanilang pananaw,” the Palace official explained.

    He added, “It takes some time for people to accept certain changes that they are not used to it.”
