    Pres. Obama to visit Philippines

     
    A Philippine official on Thursday said that the visit of US President Barack Obama to the country will provide a new momentum to the Philippine-US relations.
    Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. confirmed the earlier announcement of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) that President Obama is set to visit late April this year.
    Aside from the Philippines, President Obama will also be visiting Japan, South Korea, Malaysia in the same month.
    “President Obama will meet with Philippine President Benigno Aquino III to discuss ways to further strengthen enduring alliance,” Coloma said.
    The communications secretary further said the alliance includes the expanding of security, economic and people to people ties.
    “President Obama’s visit will provide a new momentum to Philippine-US relations and strengthen the partnerships of the two nations in many areas,” Coloma said.
    He also said that there is no concrete information on what particular topics will be discussed between the two leaders since the agenda is still being completed.
