MANILA, Philippine —Malacañang is reaching out to members of the foreign media who have been critical of the Duterte administration through the “The Virtual Presser,” an interactive online video platform launched Monday.

The Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), through the Office of the Global Media Affairs (OGMA), aims to “engage with the international media and foreign audiences.”

“This will be another opportunity for us to connect to international audiences to respond to pressing issues and enable foreign journalists to ask questions without leaving their desks,” Communication Secretary Martin Andanar said in a statement.

Duterte has received criticism from the global community for his brutal war on drugs and anti-criminality campaign.
