The Philippines terminated a decades-old Visiting Forces Agreement with the United States. The cancellation will end a security pact allowing American soldiers to train in the country. The Philippines gave notice to the deputy chief of mission at the US Embassy in Manila. The termination will be effective after 180 days. President Rodrigo Duterte delivered on his threat to cancel the military deal after Washington cancelled the US visa of a loyal ally linked to alleged human rights violations in his brutal anti-illegal drug crackdown.
Q1. Who is the real winner with the termination of the Visiting Forces Agreement?
Not sure / I have another opinion
Thanks for taking part
