MANILA, Philippines- Patuloy ang paghahanda para sa US trip ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. na nakatakda sa susunod na buwan.

Dadalo ang Pangulo sa United Nations General Assembly sa New York para sa kanyang ‘first foray’ sa international diplomatic arena kung saan ay inaasahan siyang magtatalumpati.

Sinabi ni Philippine Ambassador to Washington Jose Manuel Romualdez na may ilang bilateral meetings ang nakalinya na dadaluhan ng Chief Executive subalit hindi naman binanggit kung kasama ang side meeting kay US President Joe Biden.

“This is the first time that he will be addressing the UN – which is basically introducing himself to the world and the western world, specially, and secondly, to have economic meetings that will bring him investments to the Philippines,” ayon kay Romualdez.

Nauna rito, binanggit ni Romualdez na nais niya ang hiwalay na inaugural bilateral summit sa pagitan nina Pangulong Marcos at Biden sa Washington D.C. na may mutually agreed date ngayong taon.

Sinabi pa ni Romualdez na gumawa na ng draft si Pangulong Marcos ng kanyang magiging talumpati na kanyang ihahayag sa UN General Assembly.

“I think the President is preparing his speech. He’s had an outline about a month from now,” aniya pa rin.

Ani Romualdez, handa rin si Pangulong Marcos na sagutin ang mga tanong na may kinalaman sa human rights sa Pilipinas partikular na ang marahas na drug war ni dating Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

“I’m sure there will be questions asked about that, but I think he has already made it clear that in his pronouncement in the PNP (Philippine National Police) that he would like to continue the operations against illegal drug activities following the rule of law,” aniya pa rin.

Habang nasa Estados Unidos, nakatakda ring makipagkita si Pangulong Marcos sa iba’t ibang American business groups at investors na nais na palawigin ang kanilang operasyon sa Pilipinas.

“His main thrust in relations with other countries is to have more economic activity so we planned out to have several meetings with business councils and several groups and also individual meetings with potential companies that would like to invest or already invested in the Philippines,” ayon kay Romualdez. Kris Jose
