MANILA- Malacañang on Saturday confirmed President Rodrigo Duterte's dinner invitation to Vice President Leni Robredo and her children.

Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella in a statement said Duterte extended the invitation during the graduation ceremony of the Philippine National Police Academy last Friday.

"The President and the Vice President were engaged in conversation during the commencement exercises of the Philippine National Police Academy yesterday (Friday). There, PRRD invited VP Leni and her children to dinner together with his family," Abella said.

Abella however said he was not privy to details of the invitation.

The President on Saturday said he has spoken with Robredo to clear the air on ouster plots against her.
