MANILA, Philippines — The meeting between President Duterte and Chinese President Xi Jinping on April 8 will be held virtually, Malacañang confirmed yesterday.

“Last night President Duterte himself announced that he will have a meeting with the officials of China. What we know is this will be an online meeting this coming April 8,” acting deputy presidential spokesman Michel Kristian Ablan told a press briefing.

Ablan said it was the government of China that initiated the meeting.

Duterte announced his meeting with Xi days after the Department of Foreign Affairs filed a diplomatic protest against Beijing over the "dangerous," close-distance maneuvering of a Chinese coast guard ship near the Philippine Coast Guard's BRP Malabrigo at the Bajo de Masinloc last March.
