Event hosting challenges were among the topics discussed by President Duterte and visiting Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah over merienda last Saturday.
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said the Sultan assured Duterte that they have no complaints about the country’s hosting of the regional games.
“They talked over merienda preparing to go to the Arena; laughs about difficulty of hosting big events which Brunei with all its wealth
would not again,” Locsin tweeted.
“The Sultan was emphatic his athletes had all praises & no complaints. Imagine what the Sultan thought when he saw what he saw,” he said.
