The Armed Forces of the Philippines will not be sending troops to South Korea over tensions in the Korean peninsula.
According to Malacanang spokesman Edwin Lacierda, South Korea has not
asked for military assistance.
Also, he said, “we have to be realistic about our capability.â€
The Philippines sent troops to Korea during the Korean War and gained distinction on the battlefield.
If the AFP does send troops to South Korea again, it will be the second time for the Philippine Army as an institution and for some of its equipment.
