MANILA – The Philippine Army (PA) and the Royal Brunei Land Forces (RBLF) on Monday virtually signed the amended terms of reference (TOR) that will serve as a guide in the implementation of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on defense cooperation between the two militaries.
In a Facebook post on Monday night, PA chief Lt. Gen. Andres C. Centino and RBLF commander Brig. Gen. Haji Muhammad Haszaimi bin Bol Hassan were present in the signing of the TOR on the Army Working Group jointly established by the two armies.
During the virtual event, Centino said the 2nd Brunei-Philippines (BRUPHIL) Army Working Group developed 12 bilateral military cooperation and interaction for 2022.
He also expressed optimism on the success of BRUPHIL activities amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"Hopefully, this collaboration will continue beyond this pandemic. More than ever, we should demonstrate solidarity in this time of trial and crisis. I know we are in tough times, but being united, we will rise again," Centino said.
He added the PA is looking forward to the prospect of future collaborations and successful execution of its bilateral engagements that have been lined up for next year. (PNA)
