In a meeting with the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutteres at the UN Headquarters in New York, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter S. Cayetano conveyed Manila's readiness to work with the world body in addressing issues related to sustainable development, including "welcoming experts to conduct an objective assessment of the human rights situation in the Philippines". "Now, aside from these episodes of, I said, sad incidents, overall, I think the Americans also redeemed themselves a lot", the President added. "We will let them experience our world-famous Filipino hospitality to make sure they would have good memories of their stay in the Philippines", said Abella as quoted by GMA News.

Melania Trump will also accompany him. "I hope that you will give me the opportunity to welcome you and host you in India", Modi told Trump at the White House's Rose Garden in June.

Meanwhile, the Philippines is ready to roll the red carpet to welcome President Trump in November.

The President's engagements will also "strengthen the global resolve to confront the North Korean threat and ensure the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", said the White House.

President Duterte is set to meet United States President Donald Trump for the first time in Manila next month.

"Through similar lines and sound bites, they have all painted a rosy picture of the human rights situation in the Philippines, while on the ground, the situation is getting worse for communities, with the drug war, the martial law in Mindanao and the continuing implementation of counter-insurgency programs", it added.

"President Trump will discuss the importance of a free and open Indo-Pacific region to America's prosperity and security. The president's engagements will strengthen the worldwide resolve to confront the North Korean threat and ensure the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". He is scheduled to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Da Nang, Vietnam, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Angeles in the Philippines.
