MANILA, Philippines- Bibisita si Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. sa China sa linggong ito, ayon sa tagapagsalita para sa Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Ito ay kasunod ng naiulat ng Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) na insidente ng “close distance maneuvering” ng barko ng China Coast Guard sa Filipino vessel sa West Philippine Sea early March.

“Minister for Foreign Affairs Retno L. P. Marsudi of Indonesia, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Don Pramudwinai of Thailand, Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro L. Locsin Jr. of the Philippines and Union Minister for Foreign Affairs U Wunna Maung Lwin of Myanmar will visit China respectively from March 31 to April 3,” pahayag ni Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin nitong Lunes.

Sinabi rin ni Wang na ang pagbisita ng apat na minister “again demonstrates the close and friendly relations between China and its ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) neighbors and the high importance all sides attach to advancing China-ASEAN cooperation.”

“Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Myanmar are important ASEAN members and China’s friendly neighbors and important partners for high-quality Belt and Road cooperation,” aniya pa.

“Since COVID-19 broke out, China has maintained regular exchanges and communication with ASEAN countries in a flexible manner, continuously deepened cooperation on COVID-19 and economic recovery, stood together to overcome difficulties and seek common development,” patuloy ni Wang.

Sa pagbisitang ito, umaasa ang China sa “in-depth exchanges of views” kasama ang mga naturang bansa ukol sa “current regional and international situation and contribute more positive energy to regional peace and stability and global prosperity and development,” ayon pa kay Wang.

“China hopes to work with all parties to ensure the sound implementation of the outcomes and consensus of the ASEAN-China Special Summit to Commemorate the 30th Anniversary of ASEAN-China Dialogue Relations last year, promote the materialization of the Global Development Initiative in neighboring countries first, and jointly build a peaceful, tranquil, prosperous, beautiful and friendly homeland,” paglalahad ni Wang.
