Interoperability issues to be addressed by PH and US Marines officials.
High-ranking Marines from the United States and the Philippines have agreed to address crucial interoperability problems.
This occurred on Wednesday during a courtesy visit by Lt. Gen. James Bierman, commander of the US 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) and Marine Forces Japan, to the Philippine Navy (PN) headquarters at Naval Station Jose Andrada, Roxas Boulevard, Manila.
Maj. Gen. Jonas Lumawag, who was acting PN flag-officer-in-command Rear Adm. Caesar Bernard Valencia, welcomed Bierman on behalf of the Navy.
PN spokeswoman Commander Benjo Negranza, “the two Marine generals conducted a forward-looking discussion on the future of exercises between the Fleet and Marine forces of the two ally nations.”
In the end, he continued, “the two chiefs vowed to address and overcome difficult interoperability difficulties as both forces continue to strive for peace and stability in the region.”
As the US is “working very hard on more naval interoperability between the Navy and the Marine Corps,” Bierman asked his Filipino counterpart to identify crucial areas that must be included in future training and exercises.
Meanwhile, Lumawag listed territorial defense operations and training related to cyberspace as crucial capabilities that should be developed and concentrated on, including holding additional exercises “up north and down south” of the nation.
