President Rodrigo Duterte will not discuss the government’s policy on the West Philippine Sea with former presidents because it is not an urgent matter, MalacaƱang said Monday.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque made the response when asked for updates on the President’s supposed plan to talk with former Presidents on West Philippine Sea amid a bevy of diplomatic protests filed by the Philippines against China over Beijing’s unabated incursions with Manila’s exclusive economic zone in the West Philippine Sea.

It was suggested by former Armed Forces chief and ex-Senator Rodolfo Biazon that the President convene the National Security Council, an audience which includes former Chief Executives, to address the lingering Chinese incursions.
