“Kung mahina, palalakasin, kung malakas na, mas lalong palalakasin. Palaging ang purpose nun eh yung ating mga relasyon sa bawat bansa na kinakatawanan ng bumibisita sa atin eh magkaroon ng improvement para yung mga pangangailangan ng ating bansa at pangangailangan nila ay magkatulungan,” he added.
