Philippine bishops: no stand on new military agreement with US
Catholic World News - June 03, 2014
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has not taken an official stand on the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement, a new military agreement signed by the Philippines and the United States on April 28.
“I wish to make clear that we are fully cognizant of the complexity of the issues involved, including as they do issues of international law and relations, regional politics as well as the morality of the use of force and the threat of the use of force, and that the CBCP has not taken an official position on the matter,” said Archbishop Socrates Villegas, the conference’s president.
