Palace seeing warmer ties with US after VFA termination

“It remains warm. Hopefully, it could be warmer,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters when asked about the relationship of Philippines and United States after the formal notice of Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) termination was signed and sent.

Panelo explained that he has “been noticing that those who have been critical of US government policies have been given the preferential attention of the US government.”

“‘Pag nababanatan sila, sinusuyo nila. ‘Yung mga kakampi nila, inaapi nila. Parang ganoon ang dating,” he added.
