Jose Manuel Romualdez, the Philippine Ambassador to the United States, said US Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff handed Marcos the personal letter from Biden.
Emhoff attended the inauguration of Marcos at National Museum Manila on Thursday and met in Malacañang along with officials of the US Embassy in Manila.
“In that letter of course, he [Biden] congratulated the President and that he hoped to be able to speak to him again by phone sometime soon. But also, invited him to come to Washington when both their schedules would allow. So, it is really an open invitation for President Marcos to come to the White House,” Romualdez said in an interview with One News on Friday.
Romualdez said the US “is very much on the radar and the United States is very eager to have President Marcos come” but it may take “a couple of months” before it materializes as Marcos would need to prioritize domestic issues.
“And then also, it was suggested that he would travel to the Asean countries which is also part of our diplomatic efforts to introduce him formally to many of his important allies,” Romualdez said.
