Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo advised Filipinos in Guam to be prepare for the worst should North Korea make good its threat to attack the US territory.
“It is important they coordinate with the (Philippine) consulate to make sure they know what to do in case something happens,” Robredo said in Filipino during her weekly radio show, “BISErbisyong Leni.”
Like her countrymen in Guam, the North Korea’s threat to launch missiles toward the Pacific island state is a concern for the Vice President.
“If you look at the pronouncements of the leaders of North Korea and United States, they are like teasing each other. It is scary because it may happen,” the Vice President said.
Robredo said she shares the same apprehensions of residents of Guam who are afraid of being caught in the middle of worsening tensions between the US and North Korea.
“For the innocent people listening to the quarrel of the two (leaders), you will be afraid. This kind of mockery may result to loss of many lives,” said Robredo in Filipino.
