Working together is Balikatan's most important lesson: Lorenzana

"What is the most significant lesson we get from these exercises is that we learned to work and cooperate with our friends, specifically military-to-military because whenever there is a disaster or any crisis it is the military who is always called upon to address them, typhoon, earthquake whatever you call it and now because the Americans have the same disaster and calamities in their own area so exchange, (we) exchange knowledge and expertise," Lorenzana said in an interview shortly after the closing ceremony of this year's Balikatan exercises at Armed Forces of the Philippines headquarters (AFP) at Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

Lorenzana also stressed that the Balikatan has become one of the premier military exercises in the region.

The knowledge gained, however, has been mainly used for humanitarian assistance and disaster response, which Lorenzana said is indicative of how the Philippines intends to contribute to preserving international order.

"We have been doing this for the past 36 years, these military exercises. But we never had, even once, used our acquired knowledge to fight another country. But for disaster and humanitarian purposes, we have done this many, many times," he added.
