According to GMA News Online, Aquino said it is best to maintain strong ties with the US than with another country and to have common background, common values and common orientation with foreign partners.

“Importante na meron kayong common background, common values, may common orientation. Paano tayo magiging partner kung hindi pareho yung ating pananaw?” he said.

"Sa sistemang umiiral sa bansang Estados Unidos... maraming pinagkapareho so kung tutuusin baka mas madaling katrabaho ang isang bansa na marami tayong kapareho as opposed doon sa maraming hindi parehas," he added.



"May tinatawag kasing strategic partnership. Dinatnan ko dadalawa lang - isa sa Amerika at isa sa Japan," Aquino said.

Former president said that during his term, he also tried to an independent foreign policy.

"Noong panahon din natin, masasabi din nating nadedesisyon tayo na iisa lang ang basehan - ano ba ang ikabubuti ng Pilipino at ano ba ang interes ng Pilipinas. Palagay ko ito yung version nila noong ginagawa namin noong panahon namin," Aquino said.

He also said that he would like Duterte to succeed leading the country as this would also mean that the efforts set by his administration will not go to waste.

"Pinipilit ko huwag magsalita tungkol sa kilos niya kasi alam ko kung gaano kahirap yung trabaho. Alam ko kung gaano kaingay, ang daming boses na gustong ipadinig sa iyo na kadalasan magkakasalungat yung mga sinasabi noong mga nagpapayo sa 'yo," Aquino said.

"Iisa ang bansa natin...ang misyon naman namin lahat ng itinanim ay mapitas yung mga mahuhusay na bunga. Bakit magiging makatuwiran na pahirapan namin yung parang tulay para ipagpatuloy yung mga pinaghirapan," he added.
