Marcos to meet with Biden in US — Palace

President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. is set to meet with US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, Malacañang said Wednesday.

In a statement, Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said the "momentous event" would be an opportunity for the two leaders "to discuss 76 fruitful years of the Philippines-US alliance in terms of mutual cooperation, two-way trade, direct investments, and other issues confronting the world."

During the NYSE Economic Forum on Tuesday (PHL time), Marcos said he could not see the Philippines in the future without its longtime ally, the US, as its partner.

Marcos left Manila on Sunday for a working visit to the US and will be back in the Philippines on September 24. —with Sundy Locus/KBK/VBL, GMA News
