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

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

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

The East Asia Summit groups 18 countries including ASEAN member states, the US, Russia and China.

"President Trump has already indicated that he is coming in November", Paynor said.

Duterte was asked about a possible visit by Trump to the country after an official said the United States leader had verbally confirmed his attendance to the ASEAN Leaders' Summit in November this year, to be held in Manila.

The 31st ASEAN Summit will be held from November 10-14 in Clark Field, Pampanga.

But Duterte softened his stance against the US after Trump's win, adding he could get along well with the new US President. "At least verbally, he said he is coming", according to Rappler. Despite bilateral relations souring under former USA president Barack Obama's administration, Duterte and Trump showed signs of warm ties after Trump praised the controversial war on drugs in the Philippines. While Duterte is scheduled to take part in the China summit, Trump has yet to confirm his attendance.

"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.

During the Philippines' chairmanship, another major event will be the meeting of ASEAN foreign ministers with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in May.

The DFA is eyeing a bilateral meeting between Manalo and Tillerson on the sidelines of the ASEAN-US Foreign Ministers' Meeting, Bolivar said.

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

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