MANILA – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) will never participate in political actions aimed against duly-constituted authorities, its spokesman said Thursday.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) strongly denied claims made on social media that it is being politicized.
There is nothing to be alarmed about the recent visit of Chinese planes and ships in Davao City.
The military is not taking seriously Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison’s claims that the New People’s Army (NPA) guerillas were ready to oust President Rodrigo Duterte following the latter’s decision to suspend informal peace talks with the rebels, pending a three-month review of all previous agreements.
While it expressed preparedness to fight enemies of peace and prosperity, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has urged Filipinos to do their part in ongoing battles against fear and want.
Despite repeated attacks by members of the New People’s Army (NPA) during Christmas truce, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Saturday said it is still very much committed to uphold the suspension of military operation (SOMO) during the New Year.
