  • Trump lands in Philippines, offers to mediate on S.China Sea

"When he comes face-to-face with President Duterte, he'll be meeting a man whose policies are responsible for thousands of unlawful killings, including dozens of children and the extrajudicial execution of many others, which may constitute crimes against humanity". These are the things that you do not brag about: the Marawi and then the drugs-words of encouragement.

Phelim Kine, Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director, told Agence France-Presse, "Foreign leaders should recognize that the fist. symbolizes a purposeful attack by Duterte on rule of law that has inflicted a human rights calamity on thousands of Filipinos".

"You want to ask a question, I'll give you an answer".

Duterte reportedly looked serious when he was telling the story and advised to forget about human rights. "Because you are insulting me".

Duterte regularly makes headlines for his provocative comments defending his war on drugs.

Transactions like Comcast's acquisition of NBCUniversal in 2011 are routinely approved with conditions attached. As a candidate, Trump vowed to block the deal because it concentrated too much "power in the hands of too few".

The outspoken leader says a United Nations investigator has insulted him by criticising a brutal clampdown on drugs that has killed thousands.

"We are looking at helicopters, small arms and equipment for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, but we are still discussing the specifics", said the same military official who declined to be named because he was not authorised to talk to the press.

Philippine police said a year ago that almost 6,000 people had been killed in the violence.

"The US President's willingness to challenge the appalling record of President Duterte's "war on drugs" is a crucial test of his administration's commitment to upholding and defending human rights".

Mr Duterte was hosting leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region during an extravagant gala dinner in the Philippines' capital of Manila. The BBC reports it's not the first time Duterte has referenced a teenage killing, and quotes him as saying in 2015 that during "a tumultuous fight in the beach" around the age of 17, "maybe I stabbed somebody to death".

"A real person. During a rumble".

"For Russia, just a small window where we can start exporting our products there".

Duterte won last year's presidential elections after promising to eradicate illegal drugs with an unprecedented crackdown that would see up to 100,000 people killed. "U.S. imperialism is tantamount to war, human rights violations, unfair economic policies, and the preservation of a world order that favors a wealthy few", Palabay said.
