The Philippine Senate, by a vote of 19 to 3 with one abstention, approved an anti-nuclear bill on Monday that U.S. officials warned could seriously hamper the operations of strategic American military bases in the country. The 200-member House of Representatives still has to come up with its own version of the bill implementing a provision in the new constitution banning nuclear weapons in the country. This is unlikely before the bicameral Congress adjourns on Friday.

The Philippine Senate approved a bill that would enforce a ban against nuclear weapons, including those carried on ships and aircraft. Similar legislation is frozen in the Philippine House of Representatives, which diminishes its chances of it being passed into law before the current session ends June 10. American officials had no immediate comment on the action, which came during negotiations between the two countries over the future of U.S. military bases in the Philippines.
