PH Sec. Cayetano meets Sec. Pompeo in Washington D.C.
Last week, Foreign affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano met with his American counterpart, Mike Pompeo, for the first time at the US state department in Washington DC.
They discussed various issues like North Korea’s nuclear program, disputes in the South China Sea, and terrorism.
Cayetano and Pompeo also explored opportunities to enhance bilateral trade, and increase security cooperation.
Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez says Pompeo expressed hope for another meeting between US President Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, as a follow up to their meeting during the ASEAN summit in Manila last November.
