Indonesia's Widodo, Brunei Sultan to visit PH in April

East Asia ties with Trump's America

"Our objective is zero incident up to the final ASEAN meeting", said Cuy, who oversees security for more than 140 meetings that the Philippines will host as it leads the 10-nation regional bloc this year. While Duterte is scheduled to take part in the China summit, Trump has yet to confirm his attendance.

"I might also add that on the 27th we have the bilateral visit of His Majesty Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei", said Chief of Presidential Protocol Ambassador Marciano Paynor Jr on Wednesday, April 19.

Duterte had a hard relationship with Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, as the former United States president criticized a series of killings tied to the Philippines leader's Drug War, prompting Duterte to tell Obama to "go to hell", calling him a "son of a whore", - for which he later apologized - and threatening that he might "break up with America".

"Multilateral meetings of this sort, we usually expect 100 percent attendance".

The government is busy preparing for the 30th ASEAN Summit and related meetings in the Philippines from April 26 to 29. China claims most of the South China Sea, but has overlapping claims with a number of Southeast Asian countries. They will return to PICC for the rest of the meetings. "At least verbally, he said he is coming", said Paynor.

"All these happenings on the 28th which will also coincide with the visit, state visit, or bilateral visit of Indonesian President Widodo".

Paynor elaborated on specific issues Duterte may discuss with Widodo.

Indonesia was Duterte's first foreign trip back in September.

The PIA said the two presidents would lead the send-off of M/V Super Shuttle Roro 14, which would travel from Davao to General Santos City and Bitung City in Indonesia.

The VP said Trump hopes to work with ASEAN on security issues, trade and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, Reuters reported.
