PIA Press Release

Palace won't allow entry of Japan's toxic wastes

Manila (26 October) -- To clarify notions that the Philippine government has come into an agreement accepting Japan's toxic, Malacaņang quickly clarified that the "(Arroyo) government will never allow, under circumstances, the transport and entry of toxic wastes into Philippine soil."

In a press briefing, Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesman Ignacio Bunye announced the Palace's resolve, saying the country's existing laws and international treaties prescribe the prohibition of foreign wastes entry in the Philippines and so the present administration shall uphold such unconditionally.

"Fears of this kind (the Philippines becoming a toxic deposit site) are unfounded as both the Philippines and Japan are committed to respect each other's sovereign rights and interests," Bunye explained.

Also, the Palace official cited that the Senate has its chance to review and scrutinize the agreement between the two nation, hence, the confidence that the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement will pass the test of national interest and welfare. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
