美国总统川普抵达菲律宾,出席在马尼拉举行的东南亚国家联盟峰会和东盟成立50周年庆祝活动,包括东盟50周年晚宴,东盟各国领导人和美中日加四国领导人身穿菲律宾服装参加了这一宴会。

川普星期天乘坐空军一号专机抵达马尼拉之前,有大约3500菲律宾抗议者试图游行到美国大使馆。他们指控美国试图发动海外战争,高呼“打倒美帝国主义”等口号。数以千计的菲律宾防暴警察挡住示威者,不让他们前往美国大使馆或川普总统计划前往的任何地点。警方一度动用水炮驱散示威者。

在历史上,有50年期间,菲律宾是美国殖民地,如今却有针对川普的反美示威。而中国和越南这两个社会主义国家和历史上的美国交战国,却热烈而盛大地欢迎美国总统,没有关于发生示威抗议的消息。

美越关系“里程碑”

川普是从由越南飞抵菲律宾的。他在星期天与越南国家主席陈大光举行了会谈。他在会谈后的联合记者会上说:“要想让贸易奏效,所有国家必须遵守规则。我对越南最近成为美国增长最快的出口市场感到鼓舞。主席先生,我对你全方位实施经济和投资改革表示赞赏。对于能够推动全体越南人民实现经济繁荣的改革,美国充满热情。”

他还说:“我们刚刚很好地讨论让美国商品和服务进入越南的问题。(贸易是)双向大街。我有信心,美国的能源、农业、金融服务、航空、电子商务、国防产品能够满足你们所有的商务需求。实际上,不仅是满足,而是我们比其他人做得更好。”

陈大光表示,与川普的会谈富有成果。他说,川普对越南的国事访问是越美关系的一个里程碑,强有力地推动了双边全面伙伴关系实质、有效和稳定的发展。

确保朝鲜停止以不可想象的人员伤亡威胁世界

两人还讨论了朝鲜和南中国海问题。川普重申,朝鲜是亚太地区和平稳定的主要威胁。

“正如我在韩国国会所说的, 所有负责任的国家都必须行动起来,确保朝鲜流氓政权停止以不可想象的人员伤亡来威胁世界。安全是我们行动目标,而不是挑衅。我的意思是我们被挑衅的,世界是被挑衅的。我们不希望那样。我们想要稳定而不是混乱,我们想要和平而不是战争。”

川普从越南启程前发表推文,再次称赞习近平。他说:“中国习主席说了,他正在提升对朝鲜的制裁。他说他希望他们非核化。正在取得进展。”

朝鲜问题无疑是川普总统此次亚洲之行的重点,而称习近平承诺加强制裁朝鲜可以被看作是他高调访华的一项重要成果。

可能化敌为友吗?

川普星期天早些时候在推特上对朝鲜领导人金正恩说他是“老糊涂”做出了回击。川普的推文说,“为什么金正恩要蔑称我‘老’,而我从来没有说他‘矮和胖’?我一直努力想成他的朋友,或许有一天那会实现。”

在记者会上,川普被问到两人是否有可能成为朋友时,他说:“我认为任何事情都有可能。那虽然是很奇怪的,但肯定是可能的。如果我们成了朋友,我要说,那对朝鲜是件好事。那对 世界其它很多地方也是件好事,对世界也是件好事。但这肯定是可能发生的。我不知道会不会发生,但如果发生了一定是非常好的。”

在与陈大光的双边会谈中,川普表示他愿意为南中国海的领土主权纠纷提供调停。但陈大光在记者会上表示,越南希望通过谈判并在国际法框架下和平解决南中国海争端。

川普还在河内与越南共产党总书记阮富仲和越南总理阮春福举行了闭门会谈。

Trump in Manila for ASEAN Summits

U.S. President Donald Trump landed in Manila Sunday for summits with eager but suspicious Southeast Asian leaders.

Trump’s Air Force One reached Manila shortly before 6 p.m. local time after about 3,500 Filipino protesters tried to march on the U.S. Embassy. The protesters shouted for Trump to leave and accused the U.S. government, a former Philippine colonizer of about 50 years, of looking for overseas wars.

Thousands of riot police blocked protesters, who were organized in part by a minor left-leaning political party, from reaching the embassy or any venues where Trump is scheduled to attend summits organized by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations through Tuesday.

“Literally the government of the Philippines does not serve its Filipino people,” Cabardo said. “Even the soldiers and the Philippine National Police are not there to protect and serve. They serve and protect the status quo, the U.S.-Duterte regime, the puppet regime of this government.”

Momentum in Vietnam

Before arriving in Manila Trump met in Hanoi with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, and afterwards Trump told a joint press conference, “For trade to work, all countries must play by the rules. I am encouraged that Vietnam has recently become the fastest growing export market to the United States. Mr. President, I applaud your efforts to implement economic reforms and increase Vietnam’s trade and investment in all directions. The United States is enthusiastic about reforms that promote economic prosperity for all Vietnamese citizens.”

He added “We just had a great discussion about American goods and services coming into Vietnam. Two-way street. I am confident that American energy, agriculture, financial services, aviation, digital commerce, and defense products are able to meet all of your many commercial needs. And, in fact, not only meet them but what we do is better than anybody else.”

“We are opening up and you are opening up and it’s going to even out,” Trump told Communist Party General-Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong in Hanoi. “And to think where we are and where we have come, it’s a tribute to both countries. Trade has become a very important element of our relationship.”

Speaking through a translator, Quang described his meeting with Trump as fruitful, saying, “The president’s state visit to Vietnam marks a milestone in Vietnam-U.S. relations, creating strong momentum for the substantive, effective, and stable development of the bilateral, comprehensive partnership.”

North Korea


Trump and Quang also discussed North Korea and the South China Sea.

Trump repeated his warning that North Korea represents a major threat to peace and stability in the region.

"As I said in my speech to the Republic of Korea’s national assembly, all responsible nations must act now to ensure that North Korea’s rogue regime stops threatening the world with unthinkable loss of life. Safety and security are goals that we can progress, not provocation. I mean, we have been provoked, the world has been provoked. We don’t want that. We want stability not chaos and we want peace, not war.”

In a Tweet earlier Sunday, Trump hit back at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who had again called him a dotard, a term that describes an elderly person who is losing his mental abilities.

On Twitter, Trump, who has frequently called Kim “Little Rocket Man,”, said, “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!”

During his bilateral meeting with Quang, Trump also offered his services as a mediator for the South China Sea dispute. When asked about the offer at the press conference, Quang would only say Vietnam seeks a peaceful resolution to the issue through negotiations and in line with international law.

Prior to his arrival in Hanoi, Trump was in the central Vietnamese city of Danang, where he attended the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.

En route to Hanoi aboard Air Force One, Trump reiterated to reporters traveling with him that he discussed with APEC leaders bilateral agreements that have resulted in trade imbalances he says are disadvantageous to the U.S.

"It’s disgraceful. And I don’t blame any of those countries. I blame the people we had representing us who didn’t know what they were doing because they should have never let that happen."

At the close of the APEC meeting, the 21 member nations issued a statement expressing support for free trade and closer regional ties, without any mention of Trump's "America First" doctrine.
