Marcos will first visit Indonesia from Sept. 4 to 6, and will proceed to Singapore from Sept. 6 to 7, Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said in a virtual presser.

"Wala pa tayong masyadong detalye, pero kinu-confirm po namin na tuloy ito (We don't have additional details but we are confirming that [his state visits] will push through)," Cruz-Angeles said.

Cruz-Angeles said Marcos has also accepted the invitation of United States (US) President Joe Biden to visit Washington.

No date has been set yet for the visit to the US, Cruz-Angeles said.
