TINIYAK ng Malacañang na magiging sulit ang isang araw na biyahe ni Pangulong Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III sa Japan.
Sinabi ni DFA spokesman Charles Jose, napakahalaga ng maghapong event ni Pangulong Aquino partikular ang bilateral meeting kay Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at pagdalo bilang keynote speaker sa Bangsamoro conference.
Ayon kay Jose, mabilis ngunit magiging makabuluhan ang aktibidad ng Pangulong Aquino.
Kabilang sa tatalakayin ng dalawang lider ang tensyon sa West Philippine Sea partikular ang pambu-bully ng China.
“I think the purpose of the President going there is very, very important. First of all, he will be delivering the keynote address in the Bangsamoro conference. So, as we all know, the Philippine government, especially the President, attaches very much importance to this CAB (Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro) and he will have a chance t… as a follow up action on the CAB, so I think… And since he will be in Japan, he was invited by the Japanese Prime Minister to go to Tokyo for a bilateral meeting,” ani Jose.
