MANILA, Philippines- Inihayag ng Armed Forces Western Command (WESCOM) nitong Huwebes na walang naiulat na insidente sa resupply mission sa BRP Sierra Madre sa Ayungin Shoal, sa kabila ng naiulat na presensya ng Chinese vessels.

Sinabi nito na nakapasok at nakalabas ang Philippine Navy-contracted commercial boats sa Ayungin Shoal nang walang escort o “untoward incident” sa ikatlong beses nitong Miyerkules.

“The absence of Philippine government escort vessels was deliberate. We are exhausting all available means to peacefully co-exist until all West Philippine Sea issues are finally resolved,” pahayag ni WESCOM chief Vice Admiral Alberto Carlos.

“Our current thrust is part of the trust-building efforts we are undertaking in response to the guidance of the President to exhaust all means to resolve the issues in the West Philippine Sea. Hence, continuing dialogues with Chinese authorities is one such approach,” dagdag niya.

Batay sa pahayag ng mlitar, sinabi ng crew ng Philippine supply boats na nakakita umano ito ng dalawang China Coast Guard at limang Chinese militia vessels sa lugar.

Base sa WESCOM, pangangalagaan ng pamahalaan ang morale at kapakanan ng BRP Sierra Madre sailors kahit na may umaaligid na Chinese vessels sa pinag-aagawang teritoryo.

“Today’s successful operations only show that if we continue to engage our neighbors in peaceful and constructive dialogues, we will understand each other better,” sabi ni Carlos.

“We look forward to more interaction with China as our two governments seek a peaceful resolution to this regional impasse,” dagdag niya.

Nag-resupply ang militar sa BRP Sierra Madre ng pagkain, tubig, gamot, at iba pa, maging maintenance at repair equipment.

“This resupply mission is the10th that WESCOM has conducted this year and the fourth since President Bongbong Marcos has taken the helm as the Commander-in-Chief. The situation since then has remarkably improved,” hiwalay na pahayag ni WESCOM spokesperson Major Cherryl Tindog. RNT/SA
