MANILA, Philippines — President Marcos has appointed new envoys, including the wife of Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro.

Monica Louise Prieto-Teodoro has been reappointed as special envoy to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Presidential Communications Office announced on its Facebook page on Tuesday night.
