VFA review won’t lead to changes—DFA chief

It is unlikely that the ongoing review of the Visiting Forces Agreement will result in any amendment or renegotiation as some lawmakers wish, Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario told a Senate Subcommittee on Finance on Friday. “I think the level of consultation now is not negotiations," Del Rosario said during a hearing on the Department of Foreign Affairs' proposed P12.8 billion budget for 2015. Asked if the VFA would be amended, he said: “I think in essence, I’m not sure the US will agree.”
