The visit is part of Japan and the Philippines’ constant efforts to strengthen bilateral ties.

“Our 2 countries’ cooperation and exchanges should be upgraded further to support the [mutual] understanding,” Yamamoto said.

The Japanese official also expressed his gratitude to the PA in terms of military training and said that their forces learned much from their Filipino counterparts.
