US Navy presence in the South China Sea benefits PH - DFA Sec. Locsin


 Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Boy Locsin, Jr. made a statement that the presence of the United States of America through its Navy in the South China Sea benefits the Philippines’ interests.

“It benefits the Philippine interests that we have a US presence in the region, I’ve said that very clearly. It is the same as the presence of Great Britain of the European coast in the old days of the balance of power,” Secretary Locsin said in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News Channel(ANC)

“Again, we have a balance of power situation. Yes, we need the US presence in Asia,” Secretary Locsin added.

“The one request is let’s keep out foreign powers and I said: ‘No.’ That completely undermines the very independence of the countries who are now going to agree to a Code of Conduct, so we don’t unnecessarily hurt each other,” he explained.

However, Locsin not that “sometimes it may be necessary to hurt each other. As a diplomat, I can tell you I don’t foreclose any means to protect the sovereignty and freedom of my country and that includes the worst.”
