Trump to attend Asia summits, Pence says

Manila will host the 30th Asean Summit on April 26-29.

"(Bohol) might as well be considered a well-fortified and (the) most secure place in the country right now", said DILG officer in charge Catalino Cuy, chair of the security committee of the Asean National Organizing Committee. The meetings include the summit next week and the meeting between ASEAN and its dialogue partners including China, the United States and Japan later this year, 17 ministerial meetings, 42 senior officials meetings, and 76 technical working group meetings, he said.

But analyst Aaron L. Connelly of the Lowy Institute for International Policy said that, considering Mr. Trump's "habits", the United States leader is unlikely to attend the ASEAN summit in Manila.

"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.

But Duterte is not sure whether his USA counterpart would visit the Philippines. "As you, President Widodo have said so often, we're looking for a win-win relationship and we're confident that we can find it on an increasing basis", Pence said. The day's meetings will be culminated by a gala dinner hosted by President Rodrigo Duterte, chair of the 30th ASEAN Summit.

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

This will be President Widodo's second time to visit the Philippines as head of his country. "He will also be among the first to meet with the new President of Korea following [the] May 9 election", the news report read in part. "But it's sometime in early May", Bolivar said, adding that the meeting is confirmed but the details are still being worked out.

On April 28, there would be Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) Senior Officials' Preparatory meeting for the 10th IMT-GT summit; Prosperity for All Summit; Asean Foreign Ministers' Meeting; 15th Asean Political-Security Community Council Meeting; and 19th Asean Coordinating Council Meeting.
