Philippine President First Asian Leader Invited Under Obama Administration

I am really surprised at the thought that current Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is the first ever Asian President invited to the White House under US President Barack Obama’s administration.

Prior to the said meeting, there had been numerous rumors going around that the Lady President had been snubbed by the US President following his inauguration last November.

Whether the rumors had been true  or not, with this meeting of both leaders, well, we might as well say…something must have been settled then.

The fact that she was invited to the White House is an affirmation that the US President is open to cement any future economic and diplomatic ties with the Philippines.
