MANILA, Philippines – US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Philippines next month will push through despite the ongoing crisis in Zamboanga City, Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said on Thursday.

Del Rosario said the United States has not expressed any concern about Obama’s planned visit to the country as part of his four-nation tour in October.

“None have been expressed to me,” he told reporters after attending a budget hearing at the Senate.

Asked then if Obama’s visit will push through, del Rosario said yes.

The foreign affairs chief could not say however, the issues that President Benigno Aquino III might raise when he meets    Obama.

“We have not worked out the agenda yet. It’s a work in progress,” del Rosario said.

He could not also say if Aquino and Obama would have a formal meeting when they both attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) Summit in Indonesia also next month.

“Apec is a meeting of all the heads of state and heads of government so they will see each other there. Now I don’t know if there will be a formal meeting,” del Rosario added.

    That’s why President Aquino is a true leader and good one at that. During the previous administration, she desperately wanted to meet Mr. Obama for pa pogi points, walang nangyari. Now, even the Prime Minister of Japan visited our country to show his support for this administration.

    Cheers to all Filipinos!

    as the new normal.

  • 33Sam

    OBAMA FACING IMPEACHMENT SHOULD HE GO TO WAR WITHOUT CONGRESS AND THE CONSTITUTION.

    CONGRESSMAN WALTER JONES U.S. REP. NORTH CAROLINA STATED 9.18.2013 THAT OBAMA’S MENTION THAT HE “CALLED” CONGRESS WAS NOT ENOUGH NOTICE TO CONGRESS WHEN THERE IS MORE THAN ONE MEMBER TO NOTIFY. THAT CALLING ONE OR TWO MEMBERS OF THE BODY WAS NOT REALLY “NOTIFYING THE BODY” AS THERE ARE NO ONE OR TWO “LEADERS” IN THE CONGRESS THAT SPEAKS FOR THE ENTIRE BODY.

    CONG. JONES ANGRY THAT THE U.S. HAS SPENT $11 MILLION AN HOUR ON THE WARS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    SO O’BOOMERANG HAS BEEN PLACED ON CHECK.

    WHOMEVER DOWNTHUMBED THIS IS A CRETIN!!!

      • dorkstar

        You talk of a logical fallacy “ARGUMENT AD HOMINEM”? You dont even know what that means. That is attack on the character. Did I attack your character? But calling me a “dimwit” and “moron” is “Argumentum Ad Hominem” on your part. Again you obviously is a guy full of hate. Your hate will get you nowhere, nor the sympathy of the people on this forum.
