US ambassador to the Philippines Philipp Goldberg is one of the guests at the turn over ceremony and blessing of a C-130T aircraft.

In his speech, he says that in spite of the changes; the commitment of the United States to the Philippines will be the same.

He believes that the essence of Philippine-US partnership is evident in the modernization program of AFP.

“Quite a bit has happened since then, quite a bit has change since then but one thing hasn’t change and that is the United States commitment to the Philippines and people of the Philippines remains as strong as ever”.

Goldberg hopes that the relationship of the two countries will continue.
