United States President Donald Trump and President Rodrigo Duterte may finally meet in November this year, a Malacanang official said Wednesday.

"As of now, President Trump, for instance, when President Duterte called him up to congratulate him, had already indicated that he was coming in November".

"Multilateral meetings of this sort, we usually expect 100 percent attendance. At least verbally, he said he is coming", according to Rappler.

The two heads of state seemed to get on well when Duterte called Trump in December 2016 to congratulate him on his election victory, and Trump wished Duterte success with his controversial War on Drugs.

Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is scheduled to visit the Philippines on April 27 while Indonesian President Joko Widodo is expected to arrive the following day.

After the ASEAN meeting, Duterte and Widodo will fly to Davao to witness the launch of the Davao-Gensan-Bitung Roro route on April 30.

Because of this, positives of our country will be highlighted. On April 26-29, leaders of ASEAN member countries are set to attend the 30th ASEAN Summit and Related Meetings in Manila.

Paynor elaborated on specific issues Duterte may discuss with Widodo.

This vote of confidence was indeed warmly welcomed by ASEAN officials, as the White House had finally given "very positive indications" about U.S. interests in the region, outgoing Indonesian permanent representative to ASEAN Rahmat Pramono said.

The Asean meeting will push through the central Philippine island recently rocked by a foiled attack of the extremist Abu Sayyaf group.

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto C. Abella said Mr. Duterte's South Korea trip is "not yet confirmed".

"On 29th April which is the actual summit, we will have all 10 [ASEAN] leaders meeting up at the PICC and we'll have a retreat at the Coconut Palace", he added. "So we're doing all that and because of this most recent incident, we are beefing up our security elements", he said.
