Poe on West Philippine Sea:

We must remain resolute in protecting our maritime domain in the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

As we continue to raise our voices against the threats to our waters, our government must not renege on patrolling WPS to ensure that Filipino fishermen are secure as they venture into the common fishing grounds for livelihood.

Our presence in the West Philippine Sea is an unyielding display that we are standing our ground on what is ours and securing our people's productive access to our marine resources.

We must stand firm against illegal occupants in our waters.

The Philippines' friendship with its fellow nations must pave the way for common respect and rules-based approach in maintaining peace and stability in our waters.
