On the ‘Militarization’ in the West Philippine Sea

I support the call for the Senate to investigate the issue. Any serious matter that has security implications on our country, the Senate should step in and exercise our oversight function.

If up to now, the government still has not confirmed the presence of a foreign country’s missiles in one of our islands, we may have a serious national security problem. Convening the National Security Council is the least that we should do, given the situation.
