President Aquino leads commemoration of 70th year of Leyte Gulf Landing
 

(PALO, Leyte) President Benigno S. Aquino III on Monday paid tribute to the country’s forefathers who fought and died during the liberation of the Philippines from Japanese rule.
 
In his speech during the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Leyte Gulf Landing here, President Aquino said the occasion was also an opportunity to “recognize the goodwill we now extend to those who were once our enemies.”
 
“Beyond cataloguing the horrors of war, let us honor the peace that has reigned among our nations for close to 70 years. Let us renew our commitment to the strong and enduring friendships between the Philippines and its wartime allies, and perhaps most meaningfully, the countries that were once its foes,” he said.
 
President Aquino said countries that were enemies during World War II have united as friends to help the Filipino people recover from the devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda in November last year.
 
“Through these friendships, we saw, just last year, vessels bearing the proud names of those that had fought at Leyte Gulf, once more journeying to the Philippines: Ise from Japan, Washington and Denver from America,” he said.
 
He recalled that 70 years ago, ships with these names engaged in battle, seeking to eliminate the threat of the other.
 
However, in November last year, they came here as partners to demonstrate their unity with the Filipino people at a time of tragedy, the President said. (full story: 10.20.14)
