Other threats off our coastal waters
MetadataShow full item record
China's territorial expansion in the South China Sea, illegal poaching by Chinese and other foreign fishers in Philippine internal waters, and piracy in Southeast Asian waters are driving the Philippine government to focus more on security of the Philippine internal and territorial waters. The policy turn comes as the Armed Forces of the Philippines shifts from internal security and anti-insurgency against the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the National People's Army to the defense of the national territory against non-traditional external and transnational security threats. The move, supported and framed by the Internal Peace and Security Plan 2011, outlines the strategic movement to external defence.
