    FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – The Philippine Army (PA) welcomes the visit of United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC) Senior Member, Maj. Gen. Kim Jong Moon here yesterday, September 5.

    The visit aimed to strengthen military diplomacy and cooperation. It also served as a venue to discuss current security challenges in protecting national integrity and sovereignty, and the promotion of regional and global peace community.

    “I certainly believe that we can exchange [helpful knowledge and skills] from our respective armies,” said Kim.

    During the courtesy call and forum, Army Vice Commander Maj. Gen. Reynaldo M. Aquino shared PA’s Marawi experience in 2017 to other Korean and UN delegates. After the briefing, Kim mentioned Korea’s present efforts in addressing unconventional threats focusing on humanitarian aid and disaster relief to further bring assistance to the people.

    Aquino and Kim also agreed on the importance of setting good grounds between the militaries through the continuous exchange of military personnel and increased commitment to trainings.

    Kim also extended his gratitude to PA as he recalled the support of the Filipino troops in ending the Korean War in 1953 and the professionalism displayed by the Filipino troops today in the UN Command.

    “The Philippine Army is positive that the visit will continue to boost the bilateral cooperation of both commands in order to better respond to conventional and unconventional security challenges we face today,” said Army Spokesperson Lt. Col. Ramon P. Zagala.#
