 Diplomats to Romulo: "We're glad to be going back to Cebu"


CEBU, Philippines-- A day before the official start of the 12th ASEAN Summit and other meetings, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto G. Romulo today said that diplomats from the countries participating in the Cebu events are looking forward to returning to Cebu.

"Just last Monday night, at a diplomatic reception I attended, a number of diplomats told me that they, as well as their officials, ministers and leaders are glad, if not eager, to be going back to Cebu," Secretary Romulo said.

The Secretary said that the unique appeal of Cebu and the warmth and the hospitality of its people "are powerful and compelling forces that are drawing them back to this beautiful island."

The Secretary added that the significance of the work and the contributions and benefits to the entire region that would result from the Cebu Summits are also reasons that make the participants want to go back to Cebu.

"While Cebu and its people are good reasons to go back, no less compelling are the important work and vital results of the Cebu Summits. All of these lay the groundwork for greater peace and progress in our region. These are results that benefit all of us," Romulo explained.
