|Excellencies of the Diplomatic Corps,
Today we honor the Filipino people’s powerful victory to peacefully give voice to their aspirations for a life of constancy and dignity. Our people have spoken and the message is very clear.
We seek a nation living in peace and order. We shall engage the world and make a solid contribution for our stability and security.
And therefore, Excellencies, I propose this toast: To our friends and partners in the region and the world over, we look to you for support as we continue to work together for peace, security and progress.
