US President to attend APEC summit in Đà Nẵng

According to Malacañang's chief protocol officer Ambassador Marciano Paynor, Trump made the confirmation during his earlier phone call with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte past year.

On another matter, Mr. Duterte might visit South Korea, an ASEAN dialogue partner, in the "second half of this year" - according to the Korean newspaper Maeil Business News Korea which cited Korea Importers Association (KOIMA).

Mr. Paynor in his briefing said ASEAN leaders have requested for bilateral talks with Mr. Duterte during the meetings in Manila next week, but because of his "tight" schedule, Mr. Duterte can only accommodate "informal" talks.

The summit and related meetings are scheduled to take place November 10 through 14.

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

At least 52 meetings, including an annual gathering of ASEAN foreign ministers on central Boracay Island in February, have been held without any incident, Cuy said.

Senate confirms Trump pick Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court
Democrats reacted mainly to the use of the nuclear option to clear the way for Gorsuch's confirmation. He can then prepare for the court's next round of oral arguments, starting on April 17.

The much anticipated meeting between oft-compared President Rodrigo Duterte and United States President Donald Trump may finally happen in November, when the American leader comes to the Philippines.

For his part, Duterte, however, said he was not sure whether Trump would visit the Philippines. They will return to PICC for the rest of the meetings.

But Mr. Bolivar on Wednesday said: "We can not announce that yet".

"All these happenings on the 28th which will also coincide with the visit, state visit, or bilateral visit of Indonesian President Widodo". "With Brunei, similar issues that I feel will just be reiterated and perhaps further elucidated".

President Widodo will also join President Duterte at the launching of the Davao-General Santos-Bitung Ro-Ro sea linkage route on April 30 in Davao.

He said the Trump administration would work with ASEAN on security issues and trade and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea.
