Coincidence? China, US envoys come to Ilocos

The ambassadors of China and the United States will be in Ilocos Norte in the coming days on separate occasions.  Her Excellency Ma Keqing of China arrives here today, July 26, while US envoy Harry Thomas visits a few weeks from now.

We believe it is just a coincidence that there is a raging territorial dispute between China and US-backed Philippines on some islands.

We believe that our strategic location (we are near China) is of no consequence and that our seaports, e.g. Currimao seaport, is of no interest to them.

We believe we are not being watched by these two world superpowers.

Yes, we believe in all these..  or do we?
