PIA Press Release

Obama telephones PGMA to reassure her of continuing RP-US good relations

Manila (19 November) -- US president-elect Barack Obama has reassured President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of continuing good relations between the Philippines and the United States.

Press Secretary Jesus Dureza said yesterday (Nov.18) that Obama made the assurance in an "early dawn" phone call to the President.

The press secretary said the President herself confirmed Obama's call to her.

Earlier reports said Obama talked to the President and the leaders of Georgia and Turkey to thank them for their congratulatory messages following his historic election on Nov. 4.

Obama "expressed his appreciation for their congratulations on his election," reports stated.

Obama's call to the President came after he initially failed to return her congratulatory message after the election.

The President had earlier expressed confidence that the incoming Obama presidency holds much promise of enhanced relations between the Philippines and the United States.

In a letter to the President on June 24, 2008 during her working visit to the US, Obama outlined issues and concerns for collaboration between the Philippines and the United States hinging on a 'partnership that makes progress on 21st-century challenges." (PIA) [top]
