China, Philippines agree to enhance positive momentum in ties

Nov 16 , 2017

China and the Philippines on Wednesday signed 14 cooperation deals as leaders of the two countries pledged to strengthen "positive momentum" in bilateral relations.

After meeting with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told the press in the Philippine capital of Manila that the Chinese-Philippine relations have improved and both sides hope to "work together to make up for the time that we might have lost."

Li is the first Chinese premier to pay an official visit to the Philippines in a decade. He came to the Philippines at a time when the bilateral ties are warming up, a development that has continued since Duterte came to office last year.
