PH, Japan armies vow mutual support vs. unconventional threats




Japan has time and again proven that it is an ally the Philippines can rely on.

During the sidelines of the Indo-Pacific Conference 2019 held in Bangkok, Thailand, ranking officials of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) and Philippine Army (PA) have expressed the collective need to support each other in responding against unconventional threats.



Both PA chief, Lt. Gen. Alberto S. Alberto and JGSDF commander, Gen. Goro Yuasa made this conclusion during the bilateral meeting, Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala said.

Both armies recognized the need for both armies’ support especially in responding to unconventional threats and other security challenges.
Alberto and Yuasa also agreed that the PA and JGSDF must collaborate in answering to future natural disasters and calamities since both countries are within the Pacific Ring of Fire.

“Our national and security threats emerge in different forms and the Philippine Army’s advancement in mutual cooperation with Japan and other forces are vital in preparing the command to continue to serve the people and secure the land,” Zagala added.
PA chief, Lt. Gen. Alberto S. Alberto recalled the assistance rendered by the Japanese during the Marawi crisis and extended his gratitude to Yuasa and the JGSDF.
