MDT is PHL’s only ‘weapon’ in arsenal: Senator Lacson

News

Senator Ping Lacson said that the Philippines’ only “weapon” in its arsenal is the Mutual Defense Treaty (MDT) with United States.

The senator made the statement in response to Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin’s statement.

“The MDT is the only “weapon” in our arsenal. No less than Sec Mike Pompeo said as much recently. We’re not praying for WW3, just a balance of power being felt in the WPS, unless we can stomach being pushed around forever. Just a thought,” Senator Lacson said.
