20 December 1979

I visited the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Romeo Espino, at 9 a.m. Both parties exchanged ideas concerning anticommunist undertaking and discussed issues surrounding Taiwan’s offering assistance programs to train political warfare officers in the Philippines armed forces. At 10:30 a.m., I visited the Chief of the Philippine Constabulary, Major Fidel V. Ramos, who was the son of Narciso Ramos, a former Filipino ambassador to the Republic of China. Personally influenced by his father, Major Ramos was deeply impressed by the achievements of Taiwan, even though he is currently unable to visit our country due to political reasons. Major Ramos expressed his sincere hope to promote bilateral relations. He specifically raised the issue surrounding the five Filipino security guards now jailed in Taiwan, hoping the government of the Republic of China would release them and send them back to the Philippines as soon as possible.
