Nippon Press Center
Tokyo, Japan
5 June 2015


President Benigno S. Aquino III signed the guest book of the Japan National Press Club (JNPC) before appearing for the press event at the Nippon Press Center on the last day of his State Visit.

In his dedication, the President wrote — “The difficulties of life evaporate amidst the support of true, loyal and dependable friends.” He was also shown the guest book where his mother, former President Corazon C. Aquino, signed on 13 November 1986 upon her visit to the same press center for a similar event.

This is the first time that the JNPC received a mother and a son who both served as Presidents to guest in their press event while embarking on their respective state visit.
