The Asian Affairs

Ferdinand Marcos Jr., the son of Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos, said on Tuesday (July 5) that he wanted relations with Beijing to be about more than just their dispute over the South China Sea, and he emphasized the importance of multilateral engagement in dealing with problems.

Before Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to Southeast Asia, Marcos told a press conference that the two countries’ relationship had more than one dimension.

By working to “resolve the difficulties that we have,” Marcos said he hoped that relations could be restored after years of maritime disputes, with space for new areas of cooperation, such as military exchanges.
