    * Philippines falls, industrials and financials top drag
    * Indonesia stocks reverse early gains to close lower
    * Thai shares close slightly higher on telecom stocks

    By Susan Mathew
May 18 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged down on Friday amid caution over developments in U.S.-China trade negotiations, while Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose 1 percent after two straight sessions of sharp falls.
China denied that it had offered a package to slash the U.S. trade deficit by up to $200 billion, hours after it dropped an anti-dumping probe into U.S. sorghum imports in a conciliatory gesture as top officials meet in Washington.

Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.3 percent lower as industrials and financials tumbled. SM Investments  SM.PS
dropped 2.6 percent, while Ayala Corp  AC.PS  declined 1.2 percent.
Foreign investors net sold 715.3 million shares on Friday.
The Philippine key stock index shed a little more than 1 percent this week following a 2.7 percent gain last week. 
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  rose in early trade before erasing the gains to close lower.
The central bank raised the benchmark interest rate on Thursday to support the rupiah  IDR= , but the currency fell to
a more than 2-1/2-year low on Friday.
Bank Indonesia's (BI) governor stressed that the central bank is ready to act again to "ensure stability". BI's next
policy meeting is on June 27-28, about two weeks after a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting. 

Automotive company Astra International  ASII.JK  was the top drag, followed by Bank Negara  BBNI.JK . They declined nearly 3 percent each.
Indonesian shares declined 3 percent this week, erasing last week's 2.8 percent gain.
In Vietnam, consumer stocks were the top gainers. Vietnam Dairy Products  VNM.HM  rose 3.7 percent and Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp  SAB.HM  gained 4.5 percent.
Thai stocks  .SETI  rose 0.2 percent with telecoms driving the gains.
True Corp  TRUE.BK , Thailand's second largest mobile operator, climbed 5.9 percent after the company said it will not bid in an 1800-megahertz spectrum auction in August.
Sector bellwether Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK  gained 1.9 percent, while Total Access Communications  DTAC.BK , the country's third-ranked mobile operator, rose 6.8 percent.
For the week, Thai stocks declined 0.7 percent, in their second straight weekly drop.
