US commitment to defend Philippines is "ironclad": Obama

President Barack Obama reiterated on Tuesday that the United States' commitment to defend the Philippines is "ironclad", but he again steered clear of delivering this statement directly to China. "Our commitment to defend the Philippines is ironclad, and the United States will keep that commitment because allies never stand alone," he said as he addressed some 200 Filipino and American servicemen a the Philippine Army headquarters just outside Manila. Mr Obama said that commitment stems from a "mutual defence treaty" the Philippines and the US signed over 60 years ago. "This treaty means our two nations pledge our common determination to defend themselves against external armed attacks, so that no potential aggressor can be under the illusion that either of them stands alone," he said.
