The DND appreciates and takes cognizance of the recent terrorism advisory issued by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs to its citizens who are abroad as reported in several news publications.
As with all reports concerning the safety and security of our communities, the aforementioned advisory will be subjected to the process of validation.
After the Marawi Rebellion, the DND and AFP have been on a constant state of heightened alert for terrorist activities, and we are working closely with other relevant government agencies and instrumentalities such as the Anti-Terrorism Council to continuously monitor and assess terror threats within our borders all year round.
Dir. Arsenio R. Andolong
