I wouldn't think so, however, China is probably looking for allies, and the Philippines wouldn't be a bad addition, to say the least.

They have a stake in the SCS.

Malacañang said on Wednesday that President Duterte was determined to stop joint patrols with the United States in the South China Sea despite Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio’s reminder that the Constitution mandated the state to protect the country’s territorial waters and exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said Mr. Duterte ordered a stop to joint patrols between the Philippine Navy and the US Navy because he did not want any Philippine action that China might deem hostile.

Unless they have a strong desire to become allies with China and Russia, they better. This Duturte character is crazier than a s%#* house rat.

If the Philippines is wanting any part of the South China Sea, it's in their best interest to not antagonize the US. It doesn't matter if China likes you, they aren't gonna give you any piece of those islands.
