Tensions over Taiwan are expected to be on the agenda when U.S. president Kamala Harris meets with Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr next week, Manila’s ambassador to Washington said on Thursday.
“I’m sure they will touch on the Taiwan situation,” Philippine Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez told Reuters via phone, adding that the Philippines wants to play a role in peaceful coexistence between the United States and China.
