MANILA, Philippines— President  Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos  Jr.  has the full backing of  the Armed  Forces of the  Philippines, AFP Chief of staff Gen. Romeo Brawner Jr. affirmed on Wednesday.

Brawner made the assurance on Wednesday, a day after he was quoted saying that many, including soldiers, share Vice  President Sara  Duterte’s  opinion  that the government  should reconsider  its decision to revive the  peace talks with the communist rebels.


“Basta’t solid ang AFP and professional,” Brawner said in an interview at the Senate.


“Full support kami kay Presidente (We are in full support of the President),” he stressed.

Told about  his previous remarks on talking  peace with the communists,  Brawner  initially refused to talk about it.

 “Wag na para hindi ma-divide,” he said, but  later advised the media  to look at  his entire  statement on Tuesday.

 “Look at the  entire [interview] because it seems like it was just cut,” he said in Filipino.

Several media outlets quoted  him as saying that Vice President Duterte’s stand against the peace agreement was  shared  even by  some AFP members.
