MANILA -- Outgoing Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief-of-staff Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero lauded troops assigned at the Central Command (Centcom) area of operations for their accomplishments in internal security, counter-terrorism, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions.

"Neutralizing a number of insurgents, some of whom are occupying key positions in the enemy organization, is a big contribution towards sustaining the peace in the Visayas regions," Guerrero said during his visit to the Centcom headquarters in Cebu City Tuesday.

During the same visit, the AFP chief also reminded all military personnel to remain professional as they perform their duties.

Meanwhile, Centcom head, Lt. Gen. Paul Talay Atal, lauded the outgoing AFP chief for supporting and boosting the Command's capability to orchestrate the conduct of security operations in its area of operation.

Guerrero, a member of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class of 1984, is scheduled to step down on April 24. He will be replaced by Western Mindanao Command head, Lt. Gen. Carlito Galvez, a member of PMA Class of 1985. (PNA)
