Philippine, US elite forces hone counter-terrorism tactics | NST

A joint-training exercise was held in the Philippines amidst the announcement of the end of the Visiting Forces Agreement with the U.S. Over a month long, this training focused on counterterrorism skills and tactics. The U.S. Army Special Operations Forces and the Philippine’s 18th Special Forces Company were involved in the training. Joint training exercises such as this one aim to strengthen the ties between the two countries and share military expertise with one another. “The United States, as a longstanding friend, partner and ally of the Philippines, continues to provide support to the Armed Forces of the Philippines through a variety of training,” commented the embassy.
