Duterte serenades Trump during Asia tour

Duterte serenades Trump during Asia tour”

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will tell the Philippine president there have been too many killings in his war against drugs.

A statement from the White House released Monday regarding the joint remarks said that Mr. Trump and Duterte "underscored that human rights and the dignity of human life are essential, and agreed to continue mainstreaming the human rights agenda in their national programs to promote the welfare of all sectors, including the most vulnerable groups". He has encouraged citizens in Philippines to bring drug peddlers to justice in the country as part of his crackdown on suspected drug dealers and users.

Police have killed nearly 4000 people in operations throughout the Philippines.

We are your ally.

Both leaders have publicly praised the other and appear to have a good relationship, with some Filipinos even calling Duterte the "Filipino Trump".

Mr Duterte, who once referred to Barack Obama as a "son of a b****" began the talks by telling Mr Trump: "We are your ally". This has been very successful.

Early on Monday, about 1,000 protesters clashed with riot police as they tried to reach the convention centre where the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meetings were held. "This not a press statement". Duterte then called the reporters "spies", which made Trump laugh.

While a Philippines government spokesman said that human rights issue was not raised during the leaders' meeting, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that the topic was mentioned briefly.

She said: "The conversation focused on ISIS, illegal drugs and trade".

Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity".
