MANILA, Philippines — Timor-Leste President José Ramos-Horta is set to visit the Philippines on November 8, Malacañang announced on Sunday.

“President Ramos-Horta’s state visit to the Philippines will tackle the various areas of cooperation between the Philippines and Timor-Leste in terms of technical, political, educational and economic partnerships,” the statement read.

Malacañang also recalled President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s assurance to Timor-Leste during the 42nd Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Indonesia last May that the Philippines will continuously support its move towards becoming a full-fledged member of the regional bloc.

“In the Philippines, you have a partner. We have always been supportive,” Marcos told Timor-Leste Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak at the sidelines of the 42nd ASEAN Summit.
