“Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Cirilito E. Sobejana welcomed the visit of India’s Ambassador to the Philippines Shambhu S. Kumaran together with BrahMos Aerospace Director General Dr. Sudhir Kumar Mishra in courtesy call today, January 27, 2021,” the Philippine Army said.

In December 2020, National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said the program to acquire BrahMos missile system is moving forward but getting enough funds for this remains a challenge due to pandemic.

In 2019, the Philippine Army said it is interested in acquiring missile system like BrahMos to strengthen coastal defense operations.
