MANILA - President Benigno Aquino III remains hopeful that a dialogue with China to discuss issues arising from territorial claims by both countries on the West Philippine Sea will still push through in the future.

In an interview, the President said a “heart-to-heart” talk “in all honesty and openness” may be a way of “moving forward” in settling the issue.

“So, I am still hoping na magkakaroon kami ng dialogue kung saan pwedeng magkaroon ng heart-to-heart na talk at saka meron talagang sharing of all of our thoughts - in total honesty and openness,” the President said, adding "that seems to be the way forward to settle all of these things.”

He said that although his meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao that was supposed to happen at the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit held in Vladivostok, Russia last week did not push through, the Chinese government still remains receptive to the idea of holding talks on this issue with us.

Ang muntik ng nangyaring meeting sa Vladivostok was one of them. And I’m sure that mukhang receptive naman sila to the idea of moving forward,” the President said.
