The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is looking forward to work closely with the relevant agencies tasked to treat and rehabilitate illegal drug users.
The AFP issued this statement after President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, in his first ever State-of-the-Nation Address, said he is eyeing the use of military camps as treatment centers for illegal drug users interested in reforming themselves.
"We fully support the initiatives of our Commander-in-Chief to rehab drug users and provide them with a second chance at life," AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla said.
"We look forward to working closely with relevant agencies who are trained and empowered to do this so we can approach and carry out programs in the most efficient, appropriate and effective manner," he added.
