Duterte to attend Asean virtual summit on June 26

/ 05:46 AM June 19, 2020

President Rodrigo Duterte will join the virtual summit of the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) next week, his spokesperson Harry Roque said.

“In due course, we can publicize the agenda of the different Asean meetings,” Roque added.


Vietnam will be hosting the online summit next week after the annual summit was postponed in April because of the pandemic.

In mid-April, leaders of the regional bloc held a special online summit to discuss the region’s response to the global health threat.
