MANILA, Philippines — Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said Saturday he will reapply for a U.S. visa should President Rodrigo Duterte wants him included in the Philippine delegation to the US-Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) summit this coming March.

“Just in case, tatanggapin ni Pangulo imbitasyon ni [US President] Donald Trump na Asean Summit sa America [tapos] sasabihin ni Pangulo, ‘sumama ka sakin Bato,’ I have to apply [for US visa],” Dela Rosa, whose US visa was revoked, told DWIZ when asked if he plans to secure a US visa again.

On Wednesday, the senator, who is also a former chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP),  admitted that the U.S. had revoked his visa. He said the U.S. Embassy had failed to explain why his visa was canceled.
