US delivers ammo to AFP

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 25 – Representatives from the Joint United States Military Assistance Group delivered ammunition and explosives to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) through the Mutual Logistics Support Agreement (MLSA) on January 18, 2018.

This helps further the military interoperability, readiness, and effectiveness of both the United States and the Philippines.  Through the MLSA, the AFP is able to receive select munitions and equipment from U.S. military stock through an accelerated purchase process reserved for allies and close partners of the United States.

The munitions and weapons deliveries will also enhance the AFP’s counterterrorism capabilities.


The United States is a proud and steadfast ally of the Philippines and will continue to engage in mutually beneficial military cooperation to enhance the capabilities of our forces. (U.S. Embassy/PIA-Caraga)
