MANILA, Philippines — Four diplomats paid a courtesy call Monday on presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. ahead of his proclamation as the next chief executive of the country.

In an interview with the media, Ambassador Kumaran said among those tackled during his visit was the commitment to continue the “excellent bilateral relations” between India and the Philippines.

“We requested his continued support for the development of excellent bilateral relations between India and the Philippines,” Kumaran said.

“We’ve been having excellent progress over the past few years and we look forward to continuing the progress and dynamism under the new administration,” he added.

Kumaran likewise said strengthening the military and the health sector in the Philippines was also discussed during the visit.

Meanwhile, Ambassadors Kazuhiko and Kim and Chargé d’Affaires Variava did not grant an interview with the media due to prior commitments.

US president Joe Biden earlier expressed his intentions to continue strengthening the alliance between the US and the Philippines.
