Former Philippine Ambassador to America Jose Cusia Jr. thanked the United States for their steady support for the Philippines' security via foreign military financing and other aid.

"When we look at the total military, security, and the economic assistance the Philippines received from 2010 to 2016, it’s roughly $1.3-billion, including the $434-million from the Millennium Challenge Corporation first compact," he said.

The compact ended in May this year, and the Philippines qualified for a second compact, said Cuisia.
