2. As stated in the MDT’s preamble, both the Philippines and the US desire to publicly declare, through the MDT, their sense of unity and common determination to defend themselves against external armed attack, so that no potential aggressor could be under the illusion that either of them stands alone in the Pacific Area. (refer to the 3rd paragraph of the MDT’s preamble.)

5. On January 6, 1979, US Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, in his letter to Philippine Foreign Secretary Carlos P. Romulo, cited Article V of the MDT and stated that “… as provided in Article V, an attack on Philippine armed forces, public vessels or aircraft in the Pacific would not have to occur within the metropolitan territory of the Philippines or island territories under its jurisdiction in the Pacific in order to come within the definition of Pacific area in Article V.” (italics supplied).

During the question and answer session in the same media event, Secretary Clinton was asked by a correspondent from ABS-CBN this question: “What will America do if China attacks Filipino forces in the Spratly Islands?” Secretary Clinton’s reply was: “Well, as to your first question, the United States honors our Mutual Defense Treaty and our strategic alliance with the Philippines. I’m not going to discuss hypothetical events, but I want to underscore our commitment to the defense of the Philippines.” (Source: “Remarks with Philippines Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario After Their Meeting,” Washington, D.C., June 23, 2011)

12. As additional information, under the US Constitution, the US President as Commander-in-Chief may commit US armed forces into action overseas although the US president is obliged to notify the US Congress within 48 hours of such action, as provided for under the US War Powers Resolution of 1973. The same Resolution requires that such commitment of US armed forces could not go beyond 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without US congressional authorization. This means that a US congressional authorization is needed only if the engagement of US armed forces abroad would go beyond 60 days.

13. It is important to note that, even in the absence of an actual armed attack against either the Philippines or the US, Article III of the MDT provides that the Philippines and the US, “through their Foreign Ministers or their deputies, will consult together from time to time regarding the implementation of this Treaty and whenever in the opinion of either of them the territorial integrity, political independence or security of either of the Parties is threatened by external armed attack in the Pacific.” (italics supplied).

14. The recently-concluded Two Plus Two meeting, at the Ministerial level, is a new mechanism for such high-level consultations.

there.  klaro.  this clarification was done because media reports in both the philippines and china gave accounts that the dfa secretary had changed his tune or that the u.s. refused to make commitments outright.

Maajo kay naklaro ni naho pud. Salamat Te Isles. Ingon man gud si Clinton (the wife) nga dili kono sila motake sides sa current stand off karon but given nga mag escalate into armed conflict ning sa Scarborough ron, the Mutual Defense Treaty will define the actions of the US Government.

The Philippine Navy needs to be placed in full alert, should such an situation arise. One can never really predict China's military operations; the Indians were unprepared for them in 1962, and as a result, lost to the Chinese in the 1962 Sino-Indian War. When the Indians didnt expect the Chinese to attack; the latter attacked in full force.

Let us hope that the Philippine Navy and servicemen do not experience the same fate as what happened to the Vietnamese in 1988. The military should be ready for anything.

i believe this statement was to be expected.  pagka-way backbone na man lang gyod nato to expect nga ipaklaro pa.  this statement is couched in diplomatic language, a necessary evil in geopolitics.  pareha ra ni nga statement sa "wa baya ko moingon nga bungi ka ha?"  tua, the truth is in the denial. ;D
