MANILA, Philippines – Mayroong nakatakdang miting si Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. sa 6 hanggang 8 heads of state sa panahon ng kanyang biyahe sa Estados Unidos sa susunod na linggo.

Sinabi ni Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez, nakatakdang lumipad si Pangulong Marcos patungong New York sa darating na Setyembre 18.

Ani Romuladez, sigurado na ang pakikipagpulong ng Pangulo kina Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida at Malaysian Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“Well, we have the Prime Minister of Japan, we’ve been able to put a fix on that one, and then the Malaysian Prime Minister it’s also the other. And I think the President of the EU is also expected to have a bilateral meeting with President Marcos,” ayon kay Romualdez .

“I think there are two others that are awaiting confirmation so he’ll probably have at least six to eight meetings with heads of state,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Sinabi pa ni Romualdez na mayroong “requests” para sa miting sa mga heads of state mula Latin America at Africa.

“We’re still waiting for a word on that one,” ayon kay Romualdez sabay sabing “Like I said, there are a lot of moving parts in these meetings.”

At nang tanungin naman kung posibleng makipagpulong si Pangulong Marcos kay US President Joe Biden, sinabi ni Romualdez na “it is still uncertain.”

“As I told you, schedules for these bilateral meetings, this is really something that cannot be confirmed but it will only start as we get closer. We all know the sad news about Queen Elizabeth’s passing and so President Biden has already said that he’ll be going to London so that kind changed a lot of schedules,” ayon kay Romualdez.

Gayunman, sinabi ni Romualdez na si Biden ang magho-host ng reception para sa lahat ng heads of state na dadalo sa United Nations General Assembly.

“One thing for sure is that President Biden is hosting all the heads of state in New York for a reception, so definitely they will be meeting there. But of course we are looking at an opportunity for them to sit down and have a longer discussion on our relationship,” anito.

“I think it’s been moved from the 20th to the 21st but again that’s being confirmed by the White House. This reception is something that’s traditional… the President of the United States usually gives a reception for all the heads of state that are attending the United Nations,” dagdag na pahayag ni Romualdez.

Inaasahan naman na magpapartisipa si Pangulong Marcos sa 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) at handang magtalumpati sa economic briefing sa panahon ng kanyang pananatili sa Estados Unidos.

Tatalakayin naman ni Pangulong Marcos ang food security, climate change at rule of law sa kanyang inihandang talumpati sa UN.

Sinabi ni Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Kira Christianne Danganan-Azucena, ihahayag ni Pangulong Marcos ang kanyang Philippine national statement “at the high level general debate of the opening.” Kris Jose
