China to donate 23,000 M4 rifle to PNP — Gen. Bato
MANILA - PNP Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa has confirmed that China will donate 23,000 M4 rifles to the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Dela Rosa made the confirmation following the recent trip of President Rodrigo Duterte to China.
The PNP chief, however, said he has not yet signed the agreement on the said donation.
“I have not signed any agreement but I was just informed na bibigyan tayo ng mga M4. Kailangan natin yan dahil yung mga police station natin sa countryside far flung areas na-overrun ng NPA dahil sa kakulangan ng armas.”
(I have not signed any agreement but I was just informed that China will give us M4 rifles. We need that because the police station in our countryside far flung areas are overrun by the New People’s Army because of lack of weapons.) — UNTV News & Rescue
