Toast of President Aquino during the dinner hosted in honor of Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain, July 3, 2012

Today, a new history is being made: of a partnership between two nations with shared democratic ideals; of friendship based not on nostalgia but a principled commitment to the positive strength that can be derived from divergent histories, but with a shared, and affectionate, cultural affinity. And as we look forward to stronger relations and more fruitful engagements in the years to come, allow me to propose a toast.
