Nakatakdang makipagpulong si President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. kay Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi upang pag-usapan kung paano mapapatatag ang ugnayan ng China at Pilipinas.
Kinumpirma ito ni Marcos nitong Martes, July 5, sa kaniyang kauna-unahang press briefing bilang Chief Executive ng bansa sa Heroes Hall ng Malacañang Palace.
“And of course, to find ways to work to resolve the conflicts that we have. And one of the ways that I have consistently suggested is that we have our relationship not only on one dimension—the West Philippine Sea. Let’s add to that,” ani Marcos.
“Let’s have cultural exchanges, educational exchanges, even military if that will be useful. Of course, the G2G has always been there, and the private sector joint ventures have also been there. But I think that the more we do that, the more it will help resolve the issues.”
“It’s essentially always trying to find ways to improve relationships. And we have many proposals to them in the sense that I said we would like for us to increase the scope. Let us not stick with the issue of West Philippine Sea. Let’s do other things too. In that way, it will normalize our relationship,” pagtutukoy niya.
Sinabi ni Marcos na wala pang kumpirmasyon ang nakatakdang pagkikita nila ng Chinese diplomat.
