Filipino, Malaysian soldiers conduct joint training in Tarlac.

Camp Aquino, Tarlac City -- Some 100 soldiers will participate today in the 16th Malaysia-Philippines Land Training Activity at Camp O'Donnell, Capas, Tarlac.

Set on September 9-21, the event seeks to strengthen defense cooperation between the two countries through the conduct of cross-training activities which focus on interoperability and counter-insurgency operations.

"These cross-trainings are part of the Philippine Army's international agreements aimed at developing and promoting cooperative activities," Army Training and Doctrine Command Civil Military Operations chief Lt. Col. Oscar Partuza said.

"The Philippine Army will continue to participate in international defense and security engagements that will not only enhance our military relations with allied and other foreign armed forces, but also provide impetus for capability development," Partuza added.
