0 592

China and the Philippines are slowly becoming best friends.

Parañaque Congressman Gustavo Tambunting was among the lucky ones chosen to represent President Rodrigo Duterte’s PDP Laban in an international conference of political parties in China. The politiko shared photos of their group as they faced their counterparts from Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, with the Philippine delegation led by Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.

But what surprised Tambunting was the friendly reception of their Chinese hosts despite perceived hostility towards Manila.

“Friendship between China and the Philippines is growing. We are learning from each other. It’s been our pleasure to learn so much from a very hospitable nation. We still have another day here and so far it’s been very productive,” Tambunting said on Facebook.

Looks like Duterte’s friendly tone has been paying off!
