VFA Aftermath: We cannot be a parasite to every country




Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo in an interview with Ted Failon last February 13, said that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is no longer open to the review of the Visiting Forces Agreement with US and is not interested in VFA with other countries.
“We cannot be a parasite to every country na ang gusto natin tumulong sa atin,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in an interview with Ted Failon


“The way his body language says, mukhang ayaw niya na rin niyan. Kasi considering na sinasabi niya na it’s about time to stand on our own, strengthen our resources, our capabilities ofdefending our country. We can’t be relying forever,” Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo said when asked about President Duterte’s position regarding Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).

“Kasi tama naman siya, Ted, kasi kapag ikaw kasi ay umaasa, hindi ka gumagalaw para palakasin mo ang sarili. Umaasa ka lang. Paano kung bigla kang binitawan sa gitna ng giyera? Eh di wala na tayo,” Panelo 
“Hindi siya open. Hindi nga siya open na tayo ay pumasok sa mga military agreement sa ibang bansa eh. Kasi nga sinasabi niya, hindi pupuwedeng forever tayong naka – anong tawag doon? – relying. Umaasa tayo sa ibang bansa sa ating depensa eh. Kailangan palakasin natin ang ating puwersa, mga resources natin, tumayo na tayong mag-isa,” Secretary Panelo said.
