PASAY CITY – Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro L. Locsin, Jr. on Monday received US Ambassador Sung Y. Kim as the latter bid his farewell to the Secretary.
Ambassador Kim has been appointed as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Indonesia.
Secretary Locsin thanked Ambassador Kim for the latter’s commitment to the Philippines-United States Alliance, including through the return of the Balangiga bells, and support for the Modernization Program of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
The Secretary noted that many other important milestones that served to further strengthen Philippines-US bilateral relations characterized Ambassador Kim’s tour of duty in the Philippines.
Secretary Locsin and Ambassador Kim agreed to continue with planned future engagements that aim to strengthen the already robust Philippines-United States Alliance through close cooperation in the areas of defense and security, economics and trade, and people-to-people links.
Deputy Chief of Mission John C. Law, OAA Assistant Secretary Maria Lumen B. Isleta, and OAA Acting Director Rodney Jonas L. Sumague were also in attendance. DFA
