Moon is scheduled to meet with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte late Monday for bilateral summit talks to discuss ways to improve bilateral relations.

This is the first Prime Ministerial visit to the Philippines from India in 36 years since the visit by Indira Gandhi in 1981.

In his meetings with Trump and Abe, Modi could also discuss alternatives to China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative - unveiled by Beijing in May to connect China by land and sea to Southeast Asia, Pakistan and Central Asia, and beyond to the Middle East, Europe and Africa. "This includes upholding the rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific and respect for global law, freedom of navigation and overflight; increase connectivity; coordinate on efforts to address the challenges of countering terrorism and upholding maritime security in the Indo-Pacific", said an Australian foreign ministry release on the four-nation meeting on its website.

Modi's other important engagements include Special Celebrations of the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Leaders' Meeting and ASEAN Business and Investment Summit, the statement said.

India has been supporting freedom of navigation and access to resources in the South China Sea in accordance with principles of worldwide law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The Vietnamese delegation's participation in ASEAN-31 and related meetings is meant to help enhance ASEAN's solidarity, bring into play the association's central role, strengthen ASEAN's ties with partners, and create a favourable environment for sustainable development in each country and the whole region.
