Security & Defense

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. said the United States will remain the Philippines’ only military ally and does not need any other.

“There you go. Why the US, the only world power that is a bastion of democracy and human rights, is and will remain our only military ally. We don’t need any other,” Locsin said via Twitter commenting on news report that the US revoked the¬†entry visa of Fatou Bensouda, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

In another tweet, Locsin said ICC should be ignored.

“Ignore it. I said at the UN that there is no power on earth that can enforce a judgment of the ICC. And no one disputed it,” he said.


“We’re well out of it and should never have gotten in against the advice of our only military ally: the United States of America,” he added.
