Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said there was legal basis for the inclusion in the list of Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, a United Nations special rapporteur on indigenous people, because of her alleged connections with the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed component the New People's Army (CPP-NPA).
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque welcomed Lu's comment, saying "that basically should be the correct stand of all states".
There was no basis for the charge of terrorism, said Mr Sison, who was a mentor of Mr Duterte when he was at university, although the two are now bitter rivals.
"Relevant sides of the global community, including the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, shall respect the sovereignty of the Philippines and the will of its people", Lu said during the regular press briefing Monday.
Lu said the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights should fulfill its duties within the framework set out by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter. It's being treated as a diplomatic affront.
Sison called on the broad united front of patriotic forces and the broad masses of the people to "wage all forms of struggle to accelerate the downfall of the Duterte regime which acts as a puppet of U.S. imperialism under Operation Pacific Eagle-Philippines but which also double-deals with China for corrupt reasons related to overpriced infrastructure projects and high interest loans".
"This son of a b****, stupid chief of (UN Human Rights Council)., they were irked because (my advice to the police is), 'Do not answer question [s] from them. That is provided for in the Constitution itself, our Constitution", Duterte said. The ones that eat people? "Throw those b****** [there]", he added.

"As I said, the communications [between Guterres and Cayetano] are ongoing".
Roque earlier said the administration is open to having a United Nations expert investigate the country's drug war, as long as Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard is out of the picture.
CHINA urged the worldwide community, including the United Nations (UN), to respect the sovereignty of the Philippines and look at the government's campaign against illegal drugs and terrorism in an unbiased way.
"This is, of course, unacceptable for a special rapporteur acting on behalf of the global community whose expertise is sought by the Human Rights Council to be treated in this way", Zeid said.
Manila hit back at Zeid's comments on Saturday, noting that Tauli-Corpuz was included on the list not because of her position as Special Rapporteur but because of her alleged links with the Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee (ICRC) of the CPP-NPA.
"We welcome special rapporteurs provided they be impartial, neutral and willing to investigate, rather than those already having conclusions and wanting to justify them through an investigation", Roque said.
