Hard selling increased presence of US troops again and again « Bulatlat

By BENJIE OLIVEROSBulatlat PerspectiveThe Aquino government is using every opportunity to hard sell the increasing presence of US troops in the country. Right after Typhoon Yolanda caused massive devastation in central Visayas provinces and US troops were sent to help in relief efforts, Foreign Affairs Sec. Albert del Rosario was quoted in news reports saying that this is one reason why the increased presence of US troops is needed in the country.And now it is President Benigno Aquino III’s turn. President Aquino was quoted in news reports saying that US Secretary of State John Kerry statements, during his recent visit to the country, made the US’s commitment to the country’s security “very categorical and very clear.”What did US Secretary of State John Kerry actually say?
