US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday met with President Rodrigo Duterte at Malacañang.

On the agenda of their meeting were several key issues including an international tribunal's recent ruling on the Philippines' maritime case against China.

Kerry, the highest ranking US official to visit the Philippines since Duterte assumed office, earlier held a press briefing with Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. where he touted the Philippines' response to the tribunal's decision.

Kerry's visit comes a day after the Supreme Court upheld anew the constitutionality of the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).
