Statement of Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda on the travel advisories on the Philippines
November 3, 2010
The travel advisories issued by the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada are part of a global alert of possible terrorist activities not just in the Philippines but also in other parts of the world. We are working with our allies to validate the intelligence information and coordinate possible responses should the need arise.
As a precaution, the Armed Forces and the Philippine National Police have been put on heightened alert in the National Capital Region. As in all alerts, we urge the citizenry to be vigilant and to be partners in ensuring the safety of everyone.
Rest assured that the government is going the extra mile to preempt and monitor any terrorist activity. The President is being regularly briefed on intelligence, and is taking an active hand in ensuring the coordination of all agencies and activities regarding this matter.
