The Armed Forces of the Philippines got a big boost for their missions against terrorist group in the country.

A much needed assistance from its oldest and only military and mutual defense ally the United States America (USA) arrived in the country last June 21.

"With the assistance from our allies coupled with our government’s relentless pursuit of modernizing the AFP, we are confident that our troops will be more capacitated to counter terrorists, conduct humanitarian assistance and disaster response, and in keeping watch over our territory," AFP chief Gen. Cirilito Sobejana said in a statement.

With the assistance from the Joint United States Military Assistance Group-Philippines (JUSMAG-P) , the equipment is worth PHP183 million (USD3.8 million) was funded by both Philippine national funds and US grant assistance.

The delivered equipments consists of communication equipment, personal protective equipment, .50 caliber heavy machine guns, 60mm mortars, night fighting, and other combat and support equipment.

The items delivered were mostly for counter-terrorism and enhancement of AFP's maritime security capabilities.

"We thank the United States through the JUSMAG-P for the continued support to our defense capability build-up," Sobejana said.
