Philippines withdraw its Ambassador and consuls from Canada due to the fact that Ottawa does not take back garbage smuggled into the country. This is with reference to the local media reports Reuters.

The trial is since in 2013-2014, the canadian company has illegally imported into the Philippines 69 transport containers, filled with garbage. Instead of the plastic packaging designed for recycling, Filipinos are found in containers used diapers, bottles and Newspapers.

The canadian side to the queries of Manila said that it had no legal means to force the company to return the waste to the country. States are engaged in a dispute for several years. In early may, Canada agreed to pick up the trash, but did not start him out by the deadline.

Last month, the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte threatened the Canadians with a war because they “turn his country into a dump” and said that he would personally accompany the containers by sea back to Canada. His spokesman later explained that the words about the war — merely a figure of speech, not a literal threat.
