Share

Duterte's bilateral talks with Widodo and Bolkiah coincide with the 30th Asean summit that will be held in Manila, starting April 26 to 29.

As this year's chair of ASEAN, the Philippines is host to 137 ASEAN meetings spread out during the entire year.

Paynor said Asean's committee on security is preparing to ensure "zero incident" during the 30th Asean summit in Manila.

Bolivar said they expected all nine other ASEAN leaders to be in attendance at the meetings to be held at the Philippine International Convention Center on April 29. "He wants to attend the summit and that would be great for our country", Duterte then said, recalling his conversation with Trump.

"Even if Trump were to attend the summits, he could do more harm than good", Mr. Connelly wrote on Lowy Institute's Web site last March.

"We hope that we showcase the best in the Philippines".
