SUBANG: The 15th Mindanao International Monitoring Team (IMT-M15) has been urged to impose stringent precautionary measures while on duty in the southern Philippines following the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Chief of Defence Force General Tan Sri Affendi Buang said the team, which left for Mindanao yesterday, needed to pay close attention to the health aspects upon their arrival in the country.

He said this during the sending-off ceremony at Subang Airforce Base, here.

The IMT-M15 team is led by mission deputy chief Brig Gen Khalil Mohd Ali along with nine officers and personnel of the armed forces, the Royal Malaysia Police and civil servants.

The 12-month mission is to carry out tasks of monitoring and overseeing the ceasefire process between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. – Bernama
