AFP chief to Haribon troopers: Always prepare for worst

by Apipa P. Bagumbaran

Islamic City of Marawi (30 November) -- The troops of the army's 103rd (Haribon) Brigade were told to always prepare for the worst conditions.

During his recent visit here, Gen. Ricardo A. David, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff, ordered the Haribon troopers to protect every community in the Lanao areas just in case of any eventuality especially that the International Monitoring Team from Malaysia may be leaving this December.

However, he stressed that the policy of the government is to have the peace process.

With a new round of peace talks that will be undertaken by the government, we hope it be successful, otherwise, we, soldiers, if given the orders, we must do our best to preserve peace, the AFP chief said.

Let us pray that there will be peace in the area, and if this will fail, the general headquarters is already preparing to respond and address the threats confronting this part of the country, he added.

The newly-installed CSAFP also disclosed that the present commanding officer of the Haribon brigade will be one of the officers to monitor the peace process in Mindanao.

Since Gen. Rey C. Ardo will be monitoring all the undertakings of the peace process in the entire Mindanao, a new commanding officer will be assigned here, the AFP chief informed the Haribon troopers. (PIA Marawi) [top]
