“If he says we stay, we stay!” Sotto said in a tweet, tagging Locsin.
In reply, Locsin thanked Sotto, adding that he was “the only one” who had his back as far as he can remember.
“I go through life with just one friend. Okay, I’m not exactly a people person but neither am I cold and unfriendly, di ba?” Locsin said on Twitter.
Thanks, Tito. You are the ONLY ONE who has ever had my back all the time since as far back as I can remember. I go through life with just one friend. Okay, I'm not exactly a people person but neither am I cold and unfriendly, di ba? https://t.co/N9W9Nx1u3F

The Senate President previously raised the possibility of the Philippines withdrawing as a member of the United Nations.
This comes after the UNHRC adopted a resolution seeking to look into the human rights situation in the country.
However, Locsin rejected what the Senate President said. /jpv
