MANILA - Malacañang said Friday President Rodrigo Duterte will visit Pag-asa Island in the South China Sea within his term, as the chief executive continues to reap criticism for his response to Chinese aggressiveness in the disputed waters.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said there is no exact date yet for the President’s visit but he said the chief executive will visit the island within his term.
