This is a special special presentation of The Source on the Visiting Forces Agreement.

Shifting towards to President Rodrigo Duterte's vision of an independent foreign policy, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. says that the termination of the visiting forces agreement will now give the Philippines a chance to stand on its own.

On Tuesday, the Philippines has officially sent the notice of termination to their U.S. counterparts — marking the end of an era on US-Philippine relations.

Let's go straight to the sources of the story: Former senators Rodolfo Biazon and Orly Mercado, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo with Security Analyst Rommel Banlaoi and CNN Philippines senior correspondent David Santos.
