MANILA, Philippines — The military will not deploy additional troops but will maintain its presence on Pag-asa Island in the West Philippine Sea (WPS), Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said yesterday.
Lorenzana said there are no plans to increase the number of soldiers currently stationed in the area.
“No such plan. We will maintain our normal presence in Pag-asa and in the other eight features that we own,” Lorenzana said.
