MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said his meeting with Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad would center on security and law and order issues.

“Ay 'yan ang di ko masabi (I cannot say), but it will have to do something definitely with terrorism and piracy, law and order,” Duterte told reporters in Clark, Pampanga.

The President is set to fly to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur this weekend to meet with the newly-installed Prime Minister and to watch the title fight of Senator Manny Pacquiao against Argentinian Lucas Matthysse on Sunday.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque earlier revealed details of Duterte’s trip following a phone conversation of both leaders on Monday.
