Amid the intense preparation for the upcoming APEC next week, the Philippines received sad news that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indonesian President Joko Widodo are not coming to Manila. The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit is specifically what the title says - economic issues only.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) confirmed Thursday that Widodo is not attending the summit, while the Kremlin said Putin has decided to send Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in his stead.

Speaking at a news briefing, Foreign Undersecretary Laura del Rosario said Widodo decided to back out from the Apec summit to attend to domestic issues.
