MANILA, Philippines – INIMBITAHAN ng European Union (EU) si Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. na bumisita sa Brussels at pag-usapan ang bilateral relations sa pagitan ng Pilipinas at ng bloc.

Sa liham kay Marcos, sinabi ni European Council President Charles Michel, hindi nagawang dumalo sa inagurasyon ni Pangulong Marcos na : “I would, however, like to extend an invitation to you to come to Brussels at a mutually convenient time. We have much to discuss, from our bilateral relations, EU-Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) ties, and wider foreign policy issues, to our support for the rules-based international order”.

Sinabi ng EU delegation sa Maynila, araw ng Martes na ang nasabing imbitasyon ay “personally relayed” ni EU Ambassador to the Philippines Luc Véron nang maging kinatawan ito ni Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen sa inagurasyon ni Pangulong Marcos.

“The Philippines and the EU have common interests and values, which are a strong basis for a partnership, based on respect and mutual benefit and in pursuit of the effective implementation of the EU-Philippines Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA),” ayon kay Véron.

Ang naturang PCA ay “entered into force in March 2018, further expanding the longstanding ties between the two partners on political, social, and economic matters.”

Samantala, umaasa naman ang EU na magpapartisipa si Pangulong Marcos sa nalalapit na EU-Asean Commemorative Summit sa Brussels sa Disyembre 2022. Kris Jose
