  • Description

    PRESIDENT MARCOS OF THE PHILIPPINES CONTINUED HIS SIX-DAY STATE VISIT TO JAPAN WITH CALLS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) ON EMPEROR HIROHITO AND ON THE PRIME MINISTER, MR. SATO.

    AT THEIR MORNING MEETING, PRESIDENT MARCOS AND MR. SATO DISCUSSED ASIAN QUESTIONS AS A WHOLE, BUT WITH PARTICULAR EMPHASIS ON THE VIETNAM ISSUE. MR. SATO OUTLINED THE REASONS WHY JAPAN WOULD NOT ATTEND THE SEVEN-NATION CONFERENCE TO BE HELD IN MANILA NEXT MONTH TO REVIEW PROSPECTS OF A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT IN VIETNAM. PRESIDENT JOHNSON OF THE UNITED STATES HAS ALREADY AGREED TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE, WHICH WILL OPEN ON OR AFTER 18 OCTOBER. THE CONFERENCE HAS BEEN CO-SPONSORED BY THE PHILIPPINES, SOUTH KOREA AND THAILAND, AND AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND SOUTH VIETNAM HAVE ALSO PROMISED TO ATTEND.

    MR. SATO EXPLAINED THAT JAPAN DID NOT WANT TO APPEAR TO BE TAKING SIDES IN THE DISPUTE: SHE WANTED TO BE ABLE TO ACT AT ANY TIME IN THE FUTURE IN THE ROLE OF A MEDIATOR.

    AFTER SEEING THE PRIME MINISTER, PRESIDENT MARCOS WAS ACCOMPANIED BY MRS. MARCOS TO THE IMPERIAL PALACE TO SEE THE EMPEROR AND EMPRESS OF JAPAN.
