Pagbili ng submarine, bahagi ng plano ni Pangulong Marcos
Balak ni Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. na bumili ng submarine.
Pahayag ito ng Pangulo sa ika-125 anibersaryo ng Philippine Navy sa Manila ngayong araw, Mayo 26.
“Yes, there is a plan but it is still being developed dahil ang commitment para mag-operate ng submarine is not a small commitment, it’s a very large commitment because the training that is involved, the equipment that is involved, the operational requirements that are involved are quite significant,” pahayag ng Pangulo.
“So, it is still part of our plan but right now we are in the middle of developing mostly our anti-submarine capabilities. So yun ang uunahin natin and then maybe hopefully when the time comes and the conditions are agreeable then we might be able to acquire those submarines,” pahayag ng Pangulo.
Sabi ni Pangulong Marcos, maraming bansa ang nag-aalok ng submarine sa Pilipinas.
“Marami tayong offer from different countries not only to acquire submarines but also to build them here in the Philippines. So iyon ang tinitignan natin ngayon dahil malaking bagay yun if they are built here and we can actually build submarines here and provide those submarines to other countries and then that’s another source of jobs and of income and increase capability for our navy,” pahayag ng Pangulo.
