Malacanang says Thai PM’s official visit aims to strengthen bilateral cooperation

PAGADIAN CITY, Jan. 19 (PIA) -- The strengthening of bilateral cooperation in all aspects of mutual interest to both the Philippines and Thailand will be the main focus of the discussion when Prime Minister of Thailand Yingluck Shinawatra meets with President Benigno Aquino III during her official visit to the country today, a Palace official said on Wednesday.

The visit of Prime Minister (PM) Shinawatra aims to further strengthen the Philippines’ deep and strong bilateral relations with Thailand, according to Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda during the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Wednesday.

"There will be a bilateral discussion with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the topics to be discussed will be cooperation on energy, agriculture, defense, culture, education, combating drug trafficking, and disaster risk reduction and management, among others," Lacierda said.

President Aquino III will meet with the Thai prime minister and discuss ways to further strengthen the implementation of existing cooperation in the areas of energy, agriculture, defense, culture, education, combating drug trafficking, and disaster risk reduction and management, among others.

They will share perspectives on significant developments in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), including the issue of the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

The President will host a luncheon in honor of the visiting leader after the meeting in Malacanang.

The visit is one of the highlights of the 63rd anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Thailand, which is being commemorated this year. (JPA/ GCC/ PIA Pagadian)
