This was the statement of Presidential Spokesperson Abella to describe Duterte's first international meeting.

Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar also lauded Pres. Duterte's amazing appeal on the said summit, “President Duterte is a rock star not only in our country but also in other countries like Laos, Japan, and now the other Foreign Ministers and delegates have scrambled to get a selfie with our President.
