Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario addresses the media during a news conference Wednesday, July 31, 2013, in Manila, Philippines where he said that he has reversed an earlier recommendation and now wants Filipino peacekeepers to stay in the volatile Golan Heights for at least six months after the United Nations promised to bolster their safety. Del Rosario asked President Benigno Aquino III in May to withdraw the some 340 Filipino peacekeepers from Golan due to escalating hostilities between Syrian rebels and government troops in the U.N.-patrolled buffer zone that separates Syria from the Israeli-occupied plateau.
