World leaders were starting to arrive on Saturday, November 11, at the Clark International Airport for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) summit this week.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen was the first head of state to arrive in the Philippines for the summit. He landed in Clark around 1:26 p.m.

Myanmar State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi soon followed around 2:06 p.m.

The two leaders were welcomed by Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The government decided to make the leaders land in Clark instead of in Ninoy Aquino International Airport to avoid massive flight cancellations to and from the country’s capital.

From Clark, the leaders will travel to Manila on Sunday, November 12, to attend the Special Gala Dinner at the SMX Convention Center in the Mall of Arena Complex in Pasay City.
