“I would like to thank our counterparts both from foreign and local units for their indispensable share in the success of this summit and for their generosity in sharing invaluable knowledge and experiences to strengthen our fight against terrorism and other threats to national security. Guaranteed that these will be utilized in furtherance of our endeavor to achieve lasting peace in Metro Manila.” Danao said. (PIA NCR)
