BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Brunei—Binigyang diin ni Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. na mahalaga ang pagdalo sa International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Shangri-La Dialogue sa Singapore.

Matapos ang dalawang araw na state visit sa Brunei, agad na nagtungo si Pangulong Marcos sa Singapore para sa annual defense at security forum for Asia.

Ayon kay Pangulong Marcos, mahalaga ang pagpupulong para maibatid sa buong mundo ang mga hamon na kinakaharap ng Pilipinas.

“Oh, I think it’s highly significant. The invitation in itself is highly significant. The fact that they asked the Philippine President to come and speak on that very subject is significant in the sense that it is a recognition that there are challenges that are facing the Philippines,” pahayag ni Pangulong Marcos sa Kapihan with the media sa Brunei.

“And not only the Philippines, but this affects the region and it affects the world. So, what I will present in the Shangri-La forum day after tomorrow is going to essentially try to explain the position of the Philippines for both legally and geopolitically and diplomatically,” dagdag ng Pangulo.

Tatalakayin ni Pangulong Marcos ang mga hakbang para makausap ang Pilipinas at ang rehiyon.

“Dati, pinag-uusapan lang Asia-Pacific pero ang West Philippine Sea ay napakahalaga niyan. It’s so important to international trade that we can actually say that the stakeholders—the stakeholders are no longer limited to ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), Asia, Indo-Pacific,” pahayag ni Pangulong Marcos.

“It really involves the global economy already and so that is why I think the Philippines’ position is going to be important in the decision-making of many of the policymakers around the world,” dagdag ng Pangulo.

Magbibigay ng keynote address si Pangulong Marcos sa IISS Shangri-La Dialogue sa Singapore sa Mayo 31.
