The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is still deeply committed and loyal to the Filipino people.
This sworn duty by AFP is conveyed by VP Leni Robredo to the Filipino people as she met the AFP Joint Staff on Friday.
Despite the challenges being faced by AFP, referring to latest China’s bullying tactics on Philippine EEZ and the Duterte Administration’s “defeatist and cowardice” pro- China policy, the AFP reaffirmed its sworn duty and loyalty to the country.
VP Robredo, in her social media post, said:
“Thanks to our new AFP chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Andres Centino, and to the honorable men and women of the AFP Joint Staff for the insightful discussion that we had at today’s security briefing. Sa gitna ng maraming pagsubok na hinaharap ng ating bansa, masuwerte tayo na nananatiling matatag at tapat sa taumbayan ang ating sandatahang lakas.” (In the midst of challenges our country is facing, we are fortunate the AFP is dedicated, resolved, and loyal to the Filipino people).
