Tagalog News: DND-AFP isusulong ang modernization program - Gonzales

Manila (16 March) -- Pinagsisikapan ng Department of National Defense (DND) at ng militar ang pagsasakatuparan ng modernization ng Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

Ayon kay Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales maisasagawa na ang modernisasyon ng AFP dahil sa pagbigay ng Pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at ng Kongreso ng "multi-year obligatory authority (MYOA) sa DND.

Inatasan na rin umano ng Pangulong Arroyo si Gonzales na pagtuunan ng pansin ang agarang pag-upgrade ng armed capability ng AFP sa pamamagitan ng dalawang phases.

Ang unang bahagi, ayon kay Gonzales ay isasagawa sa loob ng dalawang taon at ang paghahanda ay sisimulan sa nalalabing buwan ng panunungkulan ng Pangulong Arroyo.

Binigyang diin din ni Gonzales na dapat huwag sayangin ng mga military institutions ang mga pagkakataong ito na ibinigay ng Pangulong Arroyo.

Ang AFP Modernization Act of 1995 ay nagbibigay ng pagkakataon sa military na magsagawa ng pag-upgrade sa loob ng labinlimang (15) taon na mayroong kabuuang pondong P331 bilyong. Subalit sa halagang ito, mahigit P28.9 bilyong pa lamang ang nagamit ng AFP. Ang batas ng modernisasyon ay nakatakdang mag-expire ngayong taon. (ac agad PIA 12) [top]
