The Western Mindanao Command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines yesterday and No less than WesMinCom Commander LtGen Rustico Guerrero presented Climaco with a plaque of appreciation during the celebration of the Command’s anniversary at Camp Don Basilio Navarro in Barangay Calarian.

The recognition cited the mayor’s invaluable services and support extended to the Command.

During the same occasion, Climaco was able to confer with Rear Admiral Datuk Khairul Anvar bin Yahya, Commander of Naval Region 2 of the Royal Malaysian Navy, who heads a contingent of navy personnel from the neighboring country.

The Malaysian naval delegation is set to conduct joint border patrol exercises with their Philippine Navy counterparts to strengthen security measures this week.

The drills aim to intensify security in the seas that used by lawless elements, particularly the Abu Sayaff Group (ASG), in their kidnap-for-ransom activities. Climaco urged both naval forces to coordinate efforts to secure the seas to discourage criminals.— Claudine Uniana
