Statement of President Aquino upon his arrival from Japan, June 25, 2014

Maikli man ang ating naging pagbisita, bawat minutong inilagi natin sa Japan—mula sa pagpapaigting ng ating ugnayan at paglatag ng panawagan para sa higit pang kapayapaan at stabilidad sa Mindanao o maging sa labas ng ating bansa—ang lahat ng ito, nakatutok sa pagpapabuti sa kapakanan ng ating mga Boss. Tunay po: talagang napakasarap na makipagpulong sa ating mga strategic partners; kitang-kita nga po natin ang positibong bunga ng ating pakikipag-ugnayan sa kanila.
