Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. said the sustained diplomatic ties between the Philippines and China is “our way forward.”
The Ilocano politiko made this statement in an Instagram post ahead of the Chinese New Year on Thursday, February 11.
“Happy Chinese New Year! The year of the Metal Ox will bring us luck as we focus on strengthening relationships. The continued partnership and cooperation between our countries is our way forward! Kung Hei Fat Choi!” Marcos said.
Marcos has close ties with the Chinese. He recently met with Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian as part of their pre-Chinese New Year celebrations.
