ANC 2pm news rundown today: Anchor Nikki de Guzman & producers can report U.S. commitment under the MDT as stated today more accurately next time

ANC news at 2pm today: News anchor Nikki de Guzman and the producers reported that the United States will respond in case of an armed attack against Manila.

It’s not just against Manila and not just against Metropolitan Manila po.

What U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said today is: “As we have stated before, an armed attack against the Philippines armed forces, public vessels, or aircraft in the Pacific, including in the South China Sea, will trigger our obligations under the US-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty.”

… will discuss this more later, i need to finish something

… and in the future, will design for the department a seminar course on “Reporting on Maritime Disputes” for students who are future media practitioners in U.P. …as soon as i’m able to finish what needs to be finished this year; Chiara Zambrano in her earlier reports also referred to the artificial islands as “mga isla ng Tsina”.

Just say “mga artipisyal na isla” — China, having constructed these within the Philippine EEZ in violation of the sovereign rights of the Philippines, without permission of the Philippines, and under continuing protest of the Philippines as shown by its legal actions including the legal victory in the arbitral ruling, will never own these artificial islands.

Never.
