DUTERTE TO BIDEN: VISITING FORCES AGREEMENT IN EXCHANGE FOR VISITING FILIPINOS AGREEMENT

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is known as a master strategist. He manages to always take the upper hand when negotiating with world leaders.

Today, Duterte sent a message to President-elect Joe Biden, proposing to permanently reinstate the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) which allows America to maintain a military presence in the Philippines, under one condition.

The condition? That the incoming Biden administration institute a new immigration policy that would grant Filipino citizens a visa-free entry to the United States.. Duterte calls it the Visiting Filipinos Agreement.

VFA to VFA!
