Press Statement of Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph G. Recto
Great speech, Mr. President

If there's an Emmy for the UN General Assembly speeches, the one he delivered can win the prize for the best written.

The team who put policies to prose should be congratulated. What they put together is the template for presidential addresses: cohesive, coherent and straight to the point.

If he was able to convey his thoughts with clarity to the world, all the more he should do the same to his own people at this time when they need hope and direction.

The President's unequivocal stance against China's illegal reclamation in our seas should to put rest any ambivalence on where he and our government stand on this important issue.

From where he spoke, with the whole world watching, he was able to plant our flag on a territory that historically and legally is ours.
