“I just made a schedule with Trudeau. I’ve never met with him, so I supposed it’s just going to be an introductory one,” he told reporters in an interview.

He also mentioned a possible meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron about nuclear power.

“I’ve spoken to him [Macron] twice already. Siguro, we can move forward on the details of the things that he’s thinking about,” Marcos said.

“Remember, we’ve been talking about nuclear power. Ang France is 67% is nuclear power ang kanilang supply. So they’re very well-practiced when it comes to that. So ‘yun pinag-usapan na namin ulit in our regional call,” he added.
