Philippine President Benigno Aquino III gave a red-carpet welcome to Japan's emperor Wednesday in a sign of blossoming ties between the two nations, both mired in territorial disputes with China, while further moving past painful memories of Japan's World War II aggression.

Aquino and Emperor Akihito held talks at Manila's Malacanang presidential palace, where Philippine and Japanese flags were displayed side by side and Filipino troops fired cannons in a traditional salute. Aquino later hosted a state banquet for Akihito, whose visit marks 60 years of diplomatic relations between the two nations.

Aquino and Akihito discussed robust sales of Japanese-made cars that have contributed to Manila's heavy traffic and the entry of Japanese retail store Uniqlo, presidential spokesman Herminio Coloma Jr. said.

Thanks for the update!
It is surprising that Mr Abbas is received at such high level.
