Message of CEMC LTGEN REY LEONARDO B GUERRERO during the Send-Off Ceremony of JTF Haribon for ASEAN 2017 Security

AT THE ONSET, allow me to take this opportunity to welcome and thank all the officers, men, and women of Joint Task Force Haribon, and other stakeholders for gracing this momentous occasion with your presence.

Since the ASEAN’s establishment in 1967, our country has nurtured as strong, genuine, and beneficial bond with other member states grounded by the commitment to ensuring regional, peace, security, and stability in the Southeast Asian Region. Along this line, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, being the military component of our country, plays a significant role in fulfilling the visions and as aspirations of the organization in the aspect of defense and security.

Today, we are to become a key player in one of the most highly important occasions as our country chairs the Association of Southeast Asian Nation Summit. Through Joint Task Force Haribon, the Eastern Mindanao Command, along with th Philippine National Police and other stakeholders, commit to delivering effective and efficient air, land, and sea capabilities and assets in order to ensure a peaceful and secure environment throughout the implementation of various ASEAN activities in the Davao Region.

And on this point, I would like to urge everyone to take the seriousness of our role in the maintenance of peace and security to best serve the interest of this very significant occasion. Ahead of us is a critical mission that requires our effectiveness, commitment, and collective efforts for the success of the ASEAN Summit, especially that we are situated in Davao City, the alternate seat if Government.

Let our role in this occasion, therefore, be an open and public manifestation of our unwavering commitment to our joint effort to preserve the values and sustain the peacefulness of Davao City in the same manner that we share the same goals and ideals of ASEAN cooperation.

Rest assured that your Eastern Mindanao Command will continue to work actively with all partner-stakeholders to firmly uphold the vision of our country towards ensuring the perpetuity and realizing the dreams of the ASEAN Community.

Together, let us be a premiere unit, a premiere Command that our country and the world will always be proud of.

Daghang salamat!
