US, China ‘key actors’ sa peace, security sa Asia-Pacific Region – PBBM

MANILA, Philippines- Inihayag ni Pangulong Ferdinand ”Bongbong” Marcos Jr. nitong Martes na ang United States at China ang “key actors” sa pagtitiyak ng kapayapaan at seguridad sa Asia-Pacific Region.

”I wish to also stress that the Philippines has an independent foreign policy. The Philippines considers both the United States and China as key actors in maintaining peace and security, as well as economic growth and development in the region,” giit ni Marcos sa kanyang two-day visit sa Vietnam.

”The US is the Philippines’ only treaty ally. And as such, we continue to pursue military cooperation with the US to strengthen our defensive capability and our ability to respond to humanitarian crises and disasters,” dagdag niya.

Inihayag ng Pangulo na hindi pipili ng papanigan ang Pilipinas at hindi paiinitin ang tensyon sa rehiyon.

Bumuo ang Pilipinas at ang USng bilateral defense guidelines upang gawing moderno ang alliance cooperation “for a free and open Indo-Pacific region.”

Pinagtibay ng mga alituntunin na “an armed attack in the Pacific, including anywhere in the South China Sea, on either of their aircraft or armed forces – which includes their Coast Guards – would invoke mutual defense commitments under the 1951 PH-US Mutual Defense Treaty.”

Sa parte naman ng China, patuloy ang aktibidad nito sa resource-rich sea sa kabila ng arbitral ruling na bumabasura sa pag-angkin nito sa lugar. RNT/SA
