Handa Na Ang United States Na Magbigay ng Military Assistance Sa Pilipinas Para Pulbusin ang NPA at Abu Sayyaf


United States Ambassador Sung Kim on Monday assured President Rodrigo Duterte that the Philippines' long-time ally would remain committed to the nation's defense alliance.

Kim paid a courtesy call on Duterte in Davao City where they discussed the Philippines and the US relations, presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said in a statement.

"On H.E. Sung Kim part, he is quite proud of the cooperation between US and PH intelligence forces in terms of intelligence and information sharing, training and equipment support," he said.

"H.E. Sung Kim also assured PRRD that the US understands the security concerns of the Philippines and that the US is ready to provide more military equipment, assistance and training," he added.

Despite his sentiments against the US especially during the administration of former President Barack Obama, Duterte reiterated the partnership of the two countries in his meeting with Kim.

"The President said that PH-US relations at the bilateral level remain strong and there is readiness to discuss more matters of mutual interest with the US," Abella said.

"They agreed that PH and the US have mutual interests and shared values. Both stressed that these fruitful engagements and discussions are very important in ensuring that both states are on the same page," he added. — BAP, GMA News
