This is the first time that Secretary Locsin met with Ambassador Bolton since he became the Philippines’ top diplomat.

Secretary Locsin said the meeting was “vastly enlightening, frank, wide-ranging yet sharply focused on the key issues.”

Philippine ambassador to the United States Jose Manuel Romualdez (bottom photo at far left) accompanied the secretary in the meeting.
