Members of the Senate of the Philippines discuss environmental and diplomatic cooperation with their French counterparts in APsay City on Monday, January 9, 2017.

Four members of the French senate led by Senator Gerard Miquel met with some Philippine senators in Pasay City on Monday.

Included in the talks are cooperation and ties between the Philippines and France, especially the issue on climate change.

The meeting was led by Senate President Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel III, together with Sen. Loren Legarda, head of the Philippine-France Parliamentary Friendship Association, Senate President Pro-Tempore Franklin Drilon, senators Cynthia Villar, Juan Miguel Zubiri, Joseph Victor ejercito and their French counterparts senators Gerard Miquel, Bernard Saugey, Claude Lenoir and Simon Sutour.

According to Sen. Pimentel, the meeting is important because after a 16-year hiatus or lack of inter-parliamentary cooperation and exchanges between the French Republic and the Senate of the Philippines, it is high time to promote the parliamentary diplomacy and the exchange of best practices of the two countries.

“With this visit, we can renew and deepen our inter-parliamentary cooperation with France once more, exchange best practices and pursue global advocacies such as climate, sustainable development, poverty alleviation and improvement of economic and trade relations,” said Sen. Pimentel

For his part, Sen. Miquel, President of the Inter-Parliamentary Friendship group said, it is important to promote economic cooperation between the Philippines and France.

Aside from Philippine senators, the French senators will also meet with Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr., Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III and Cebu Mayor Tomas Osmeña during their four-day state visit. — Joyce Balancio | UNTV News & Rescue
