Pimentel: Duterte may cancel VFA with or without a reason
That’s presidential prerogative.
Senator Koko Pimentel said President Duterte may scrap the Philippines-United States visiting forces agreement (VFA) if he wants to.
“Re VFA, that agreement should always be subject to review. The President may cancel it with or without a reason. He can even say that times have changed and it is no longer needed by the country,” he wrote on Facebook.
Duterte earlier said he would terminate the military deal with the United States if it won’t correct the visa cancellation of Senator Ronald dela Rosa. The VFA governs the entry and presence of American troops in the Philippines.
