Wag na paalisin US! Ruffy Biazon wants defense deal kept

0

Ruffy Biazon is predicting that the Philippines will decide to keep the Visiting Forces Agreement with the United States despite President Rodrigo Duterte’s shock decision in 2020.

The Muntinlupa congressman has several hints to back his theory, the first being the more aggressive actions of China in the West Philippine Sea. Now, he’s also seeing this equipment purchase deal as a positive sign that the status quo will be kept.

“This could be a sign that the restoration of defense cooperation between PH-US is in the offing, with future operations being considered,” the politiko added.
