QUEZON CITY, Philippines - The Mutual Defense Board and Security Engagement Board (MDB-SEB) met on 22 November 2016 at the General Headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City.

The successful completion of the MDB-SEB ensures continued, robust relations between the U.S. and Philippine militaries.

We look forward to continued, close cooperation in areas central to both our national and security interests including humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, counterterrorism, cyber security, and maritime security.

The board was jointly presided by co-chairs General Ricardo R. Visaya, Chief of Staff, Armed Forces of the Philippines and Admiral Harry B. Harris, Jr., Commander, U.S. Pacific Command. They were joined and supported by various standing committees and participating agencies of both governments.‎
