Last Meeting for Arroyo and Bush

Inquirer.net, Posted: May 31, 2008

MANILA Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and U.S. President George W. Bush will meet for the last time as leaders of their nations when she goes to Washington and New York next month, reports Inquirer.net. President Bush steps down in January 2009, and President Arroyo completes her term in 2010. Philippine Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye announced this week that Arroyos schedule from June 23 to 29 also includes meetings with other key U.S. government officials, members of the U.S. Congress, Filipino veterans of World War II, leaders and members of the Filipino-American community, business leaders, investors and environmental groups. During her visit, Arroyo will also push the candidacy of Philippine Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, her staunch political ally, for a seat in the International Court of Justice. Bunye says the two presidents will talk about further strengthening ties between their countries. Arroyo will also discuss food security, environmental protection, counterterrorism, the Burma situation and global trade, in addition to thanking the U.S. Senate for its historic 96-1 vote for the Veterans Benefits Enhancement Act, which also includes pension benefits for Filipino World War II veterans.
