A team of US Secret Service have already arrived in the Philippines to prepare for the visit of US President Barack Obama on Monday April 28, 2014.

The Presidential Security Group (PSG) will be leading the security arrangement for the visit, military spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Ramon Zagala said on an interview.

“If there is a head of state that visits the country, the lead agency for security is the PSG,” Zagala said.

He also said that the US Secret Service are already coordinating with the PSG last Monday. PSG and US Secret Service will work together during the visit, Zagala said. However, he declined to answer about the number of the members of the US Secret Service that arrived in the country.

There were no threats detected and the security alert status has not been raised for the visit.

Authorities said that they will be monitoring the well-publicized plans by left-leaning party-list groups and organizations that will held protests against the visit of Obama. The leftist militants said Obama's visit is meant to exploit the state of uncertainty and tension generated by Philippines tension with China over the West Philippine Sea—the part of the South China Sea that the Philippines asserts is part of its territory.
