In return, Chinese nationals jailed in the Philippines may be allowed to serve the remainder of their services in their home country. The proposed prisoner swap pact was among the topics discussed by President Duterte and China President Xi Jinping in their bilateral talks. “It’s been an issue for quite some time so they reviewed it and they’re making progress on this and they want to continue making progress,” he said when asked if the matter was raised by Duterte in his meeting with Xi.
