Colombian President Jose Manuel Santos left the Philippines Thursday morning as he completed his participation in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting.
The president boarded at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 at 9 a.m., but his plane flew past 9:30 a.m.
Colombia is the only country that is not a member of APEC but was invited to the Economic Leaders´ Meeting.
To date, the Latin American country has waited for a membership into the group for 25 years. New membership into APEC is banned until next year, which was implemented since 1997.(PNA)
