In an interview with the media, Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "Because it is not a legitimate agency according to SEC.

Pres. Duterte added further that "If they say they are now legitimate, they can enter (Malacanang) again. No problem with me. But unless they are not legitimate, since it is not Filipino-owned, that is illegal," the President added.
