Honored to meet the King of Cambodia, PBBM
On Thursday, King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia gave President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. a cordial welcome that left him feeling pleased.
Before the official start of the 40th and 41st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Summits in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from November 10 to 13, Marcos and his fellow leaders from Southeast Asia paid Sihamoni a royal audience.
Isang karangalan ang maimbita sa Royal Palace ng Cambodia upang makilala si Haring Norodom Sihamoni (It is an honor to visit the Royal Palace of Cambodia to meet with King Norodom Sihamoni),” Marcos wrote in a Facebook post.
Marcos also praised Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia for allowing him and other ASEAN leaders to meet with Sihamoni.
He stated, “We are tremendously grateful to Prime Minister Hun Sen for the opportunity he had provided to us, the ASEAN Heads of State and Government. Lubos kaming nagpapasalamat kay Prime Minister Hun Sen sa binigay niyang pagkakataon sa aming ASEAN Heads of State and Government.”
Marcos promised to strengthen the “enduring relationship” between the Philippines and Cambodia in August of this year.
On August 20, 1957, the Philippines and Cambodia formally established diplomatic relations.
In a statement published on its official Facebook page, the Office of the President claimed that Marcos and the nine other ASEAN leaders stressed the importance of fortifying regional connections “for the benefit of the people of South East Asia and beyond.”
In a different Facebook post, Marcos expressed confidence that the Philippines’ involvement at the ASEAN conference will improve ties with its ASEAN neighbors and dialogue partners.
“Aside from the discussions with leaders of ASEAN member-states, we will also hold a meeting with our ASEAN dialogue partners, including Canada, China, Japan, and the United States,” he said.
“We are optimistic that we will have better relations with leaders of nations we will have interaction with in the future days,” Marcos continued. “Umaasa tayong mas titibay ang ating relasyon sa mga bansang ating makakasalamuha sa susunod na mga araw.”
ASEAN leaders are anticipated to concentrate on regional collaboration on a number of issues, such as food security, climate change, health, and economic recovery.
Regional problems like the 2019 coronavirus pandemic, the state of Myanmar, the situation in the South China Sea, and the ongoing confrontation between Russia and Ukraine will also be covered.
