From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On the victory of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party

We wish to congratulate HE Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the results of the elections this weekend.

This fresh mandate augurs well for the excellent Philippine-Japan ties. We have many points of collaboration with our neighbor in the North, which include economic, socio-political security and defense cooperation.

We are therefore confident that both countries’ solid and strategic partnership would continue to gain greater strength in the years to come.
