Pence says Trump to attend Asian summit in Nov

Paynor also revealed that even President Duterte realized that it is hard to prepare and host the ASEAN Summit after experiencing it from the other side of the bench.

"The relationship between the United States and ASEAN is a strategic partnership".

He said other country leaders from dialogue partners like Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, and South Korea are also expected to attend.

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.

Duterte called Trump in December 2016 to congratulate him on his victory in the USA presidential elections.

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

"However, our administrative rules, including procurement laws made it very hard for us to prepare because bidding process usually takes all of three months", he said. "Numerous leaders who do not attend do so because of internal issues", although "one or two" leaders may not be able to attend.

Paynor said that with "Multilateral meetings of this sort, you usually expect 100% attendance". They will return to PICC for the rest of the meetings.

But he will have "formal" bilateral meetings with Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei on April 27 and Indonesian President Joko Widodo on April 28, Mr. Paynor said, adding that Mr. Duterte will also meet with the head of Laos but "we're still looking for a time". "And I would imagine that security of our sea lanes, cross-border traffic and patrol, agriculture, I think, may be one of the issues that will be discussed with Indonesia", he said.

Trump's administration will work with ASEAN on security issues, trade, and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea (East Sea), Pence said. "Just like me, I am not that bright but I am very deliberate".
