US-PH mutual defense accord ‘productive, successful’ | Philippine News Agency

The Mutual Defense Treaty (MDT), signed 67 years ago, is a testament that the alliance between the United States and the Philippines has been a success, US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim said Tuesday.

“At the request of the Philippine government, US Special Operations Forces provided critical assistance to the Armed Forces of the Philippines in Marawi throughout their fight,” he added.

Kim said the two nations have also shared “strong and deep-rooted economic partnership,” aside from its military alliance.

“We’re optimistic about the Philippines’ economic future and look forward to further deepening our economic ties,” he said, noting the Philippines is the largest exporter of the US by value.
