"The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) claimed the bodies of Salvador and Viste were found together with the bodies of the killed suspected rebel members but the CPA and Cordillera Human Rights Alliance who conducted investigation regarding the case found out that it was a lie" United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) pastor Joseph Agpaoa said
They added that, by entering into EDCA, the respondents effectively waived the country's sovereignty, adding that what they have done "is so gross that it constitutes a derogation of our country's dignity and an unconscionable sellout of our sovereignty."
"In the 15 years that the VFA has been in place, the country's sovereignty and national interest has been undermined in favor of US strategic economic and politico-military interests in the country and the Asia-Pacific region" they said
Reacting to the DOE's information, Bayan Muna partylist Representative Neri Colmenares said, "After this hullabaloo, this is just after all an issue of reserves."
