Why the Philippines Is Increasingly Keeping a Close Eye on Taiwan
Briefly

The Philippines appears to be preparing for a potential conflict with China over Taiwan, as it strengthens its military ties with Taiwan allies and conducts a military buildup on a northern island.
Given the Philippines' proximity to Taiwan, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has stated that it's hard to imagine a scenario in which the Philippines remains untouched by any conflict over the self-governed island.
The Philippines could play a key role in assisting the U.S. and other allies in the event of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, as it is geographically close and has strengthened its military ties with Taiwan and other allies.
In the event of an invasion, the first 48 hours are crucial, and the Philippines could help bridge the response time gap before the American Navy can fully respond to a major contingency.
