Published on Tuesday, 20 November, 2012 - 16:55

As we engage other nations, we try to convey the values that brought us to the favorable conditions our country is enjoying at present: In the eyes of the law, everyone is equal—the law does not distinguish between big or small, rich or poor, strong or weak. Again and again, the world bears witness to the new face of the Philippines: head held high, principled, and with integrity. Continue reading →

Umasa po kayo: hangga't ako ang may mandatong isatinig ang kolektibong adhikain ng aking mga boss at hangga't nasa likod ko kayo—patuloy nating ididiin ang ating mga prinsipyo, sa harap man ng ASEAN, o sa entablado ng buong mundo.

Intervention of President Aquino during the 15th ASEAN-China Summit, November 19, 2012

Published on Monday, 19 November, 2012 - 13:00

The Forum saw an offer of the United States to launch an Expanded ASEAN Seafarers’ Training (EAST) program, which will strengthen vessel security and build the capacity of seafarers against acts of piracy. This is especially relevant to the Philippines, since my people compose a full quarter of the entire world's seafaring population. In an increasingly interconnected world, it is my hope that our countries continue to explore opportunities to cooperate, and to strengthen our linkages through respect and reasonability, with an eye on the fulfillment of our shared aspirations for humanity.

Intervention of President Aquino during the 15th ASEAN-ROK Summit in Cambodia, November 19, 2012

Published on Monday, 19 November, 2012 - 07:00

A sense of mutual respect and equality; of a future shared by all: these have also informed my country's decisions as we signed, for example, the Non-Proliferation Treaty and staunchly supported global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. And even as we recognize the right of countries to pursue peaceful uses of nuclear technology, we express concern over recent developments surrounding the nuclear programs of Iran and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. As a believer in rules, we therefore support calls for Iran and the DPRK to abide by relevant UN resolutions, and allow regular inspections by the IAEA. Continue reading →

Published on Sunday, 18 November, 2012 - 08:00

We now count our community among the few bright spots in a world beset with uncertainty. Among our challenges, then, is how to sustain, and perhaps even accelerate, the gains we have made. The right to live free from fear and uncertainty; to live free from hunger and poverty; to live dignified lives of opportunity: these can only be fully realized if the growth we are experiencing now is felt equitably by the majority of our peoples.

Ang panawagan ko lang po sa ating lahat: sa bawat pagkakataon, pagsumikapan nating iangat ang isa’t isa.
