In a press briefing earlier in the day, Marcos said he would seek to strengthen ties between the Philippines and China.

The President also said he intended to “find ways to work to resolve the conflicts that we have” as he did not want the two nation’s relationship to be confined to issues concerning Manila and Beijing’s maritime dispute.
