AFP Not Intimidated By China’s Challenges in the WPS – AFP Chief of Staff General Sobejana


The recent and continuing events that are happening in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) between the Philippines and China is not enough reason to get the Armed Forces of the Philippines to be intimidated.

Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief-of-Staff General Cirilito Sobejana, in an interview with DZBB on May 4, said hat they are not intimidated by China’s challenges in West Philippine Sea.

“Hindi po tayo nai-intimidate sa mga challenges. Challenge lang kasi ang ano, tina-challenge lang ‘yung ating mga Navy, e hindi po tayo nagpapadala r’on. Tuloy tuloy po ‘yung ating pagreresuply, so tina-challenge din natin sila. May counter challenge din tayo sa kanila na hindi po sa kanila itong West Philippine Sea kundi pagmamayari ng Pilipinas,” General Sobejana said.

The AFP Chief of Staff notes that they are patrolling areas in West Philippine Sea (WPS) where Filipino fishermen are operating and wherever Chinese assets are.

“Buong West Philippine Sea po kung saan nasasakupan ng Pilipinas ang ating pinapatrolan pero kung saan po ‘yung ating mangingisda at kung san itong sasakyang pandagat ng China dun po tayo kadalasang pumupunta dahil iiwasan natin na mathreaten or ma-intimidate ‘yung ating mangingisdang kababayan,” the Armed Forces chief said.

“Dahil sa presensya natin sila po ay nabigyan ng proteksyon at lumalakas din po ang loob nila na may nakikita silang mga sasakyang pandagat mula sa Philippine Navy, sa Coast Guard saka sa BFAR,” Sobejana added.
