MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) will soon have 10 more vessels in its fleet in order to fulfill its mandate to protect the country’s territorial waters in the wake of a maritime row with China, President Aquino said yesterday.

Aquino made the disclosure when he arrived yesterday morning from a visit to Tokyo, where he attended the 40th Association of Southeast Asian Nations-Japan Commemorative Summit, along with other world leaders.

“Even before we went home, the good news just did not stop,” Aquino said in his arrival speech at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 in Pasay City, adding that he signed the $184-million loan Japan had extended to the Philippines.
