President Rodrigo Duterte is still interested in going to Pag-asa Island even after he already cancelled his previous plan to visit the island on June 12, 2017 to head the hoisting of the Philippine flag after the protest made by China.

In a presscon at Pag-Asa island, Defesne Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said that the President wants to stay overnight to be with the soldiers.

However, there is no assurance on when this will happen.

According to Lorenzana, there is a possibility that Presidential Communications Office Secretary Martin Andanar will go to Pag-asa on the said date if they are done constructing the radio station in the said island.
