Updated

by Roy Mabasa

The Philippine Consulate General in Hagatna said the office will be ready to respond to ensure the safety and security of Filipinos working and residing in Guam if and when North Korea fires missiles in its direction.

“Our Consulate General has Contingency Plans which are regularly updated,” Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Spokesperson Rob Bolivar said in a statement. “These Contingency Plans will enable the Consulate General to respond to emergencies in their area of jurisdiction, including coordination with the host country and the Filipino community.”

Around 43,000 Filipinos currently live in Guam, which is home to a US military base and sits approximately 2,500 kilometers away from the Philippines.
