US State Department made a decision to halt the sale of some 26,000 assault rifles to the PNP because of the alleged human rights violations in the country amid the government’s bloody war against drugs.
"It's a US Foreign Policy move that hits two birds with one stone:" Sasot wrote.
She said that the US is only using the extrajudicial killings on the surface.
