Coast Guard bares counter-terrorism capabilities

Manila (12 November) -- Members of the Philippine Coast Guard strut their moves during a counter-terrorism capability demonstration recently held at the Manila Bay.

Although there is no apparent confirmation on an imminent terror attack, the Coast Guard has taken up more proactive measures to address the country's maritime vulnerabilities.

According to Philippine Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Wilfredo D. Tamayo the exercise is aimed at improving the coast guard's operational readiness and prompt response to critical situations or incidents.

Tamayo added that the coast guard is also intensifying the deployment of Special Operation Group (SOG) and K-9 units in vital ports, harbours, waterways, associated facilities, and ships to strengthen its capabilities in PCG operating units nationwide.

The activity featured prompt response to critical situations and incidents involving commercial vessels plying Philippine waters. It also demonstrated vessel boarding search and seizure, which is PCG's strategic approach against hostile vessels at sea, non-compliant vessels, and even vessels hostage by pirates or terrorists.

The Philippine Coast Guard remain confident that the counter-terrorism capability demonstration will strengthen the country's maritime security in cooperation with the National Counter Terrorism Unit (NCTU) of the Anti-Terrorism Council under the Office of the President, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police.
