MANILA -- U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday reaffirmed Washington's "unwavering" security guarantees to the Philippines in a bilateral meeting with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in Manila.

Harris arrived in the Philippines late Sunday after attending the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Bangkok. She is the highest ranking U.S. official to visit the Southeast Asian nation under Marcos, who has sought to reinvigorate ties with Washington.
