THE Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has yet to verify or uncover any destabilization plot against President Rodrigo Duterte and the government, a military official said late Thursday.
“We will be conferring with other government agencies. But in so far as the AFP is concerned, we have not monitored any such destabilization plan,” AFP chief of public affairs, Col. Edgard Arevalo, said.
Arevalo reiterated that the military would not allow any attempt to undermine the stability of the government.
“We will frustrate any effort that will cause the disruption of our democratic way of life. That is, and shall always be, our commitment to the nation and our people,” he added.
Earlier reports claimed that a still unidentified group is attempting to destabilize the Duterte administration.
Earlier on Thursday, the President accused some officials of the past administration and the communist group as behind the plot to lust him.
Duterte also mentioned the ongoing campaign against communist insurgents. “We are fighting the New People’s Army. At this stage, I am not ready to talk to them because it is not good for the country. Eh kung para lang sa bayan, okay ‘yan (If it’s for the people, okay). But the way that it is now, ayaw ko (I don’t want it). And maybe it would take some time to… maybe another President to do it,” he said.
