In defense and security, Duterte said both countries "must work closer to address the threats of terrorism and violent extremism that undermine the economic progress we have so far achieved".

Twitter users were swift to criticise Duterte's remarks. Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing received Philippine President Duterte at Horizon Lake View Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw, according to Senior General Min Aung Hlaing's Facebook page.

"When President Duterte got elected suddenly, our being Filipinos in Myanmar mattered", said Jose Dennis Teodosio who now works as a consultant for creative services, scriptwriting, and training at the Myanmar Media Development Center. Duterte has especially appeared reticent to cooperate with the United States in curbing China's expansionist moves in the South China Sea where Beijing claims territory belonging to the Philippines in the Spratly Islands and Scarborough Shoal. "If that is part of my destiny, it is my destiny to go", Mr Duterte told reporters shortly before leaving for Myanmar. Widespread prejudice against the country's Muslim Rohingya minority has led to deadly communal violence, posing a political threat to Suu Kyi while earning worldwide opprobrium. "Why don't you mind your own business", the 71-year-old leader said. To that concern, Duterte asked, "Why do you have to fuck with us?"

Last week, the European Parliament issued a resolution condemning the "high number of extrajudicial killings" that had taken place since he came to power.

'More people will die.

Since taking office last July, Duterte, nicknamed "the Punisher" for his lethal approach to policing, has led a bloody war on drugs that has killed more than 7,000 people. "This, before, was the favourite of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries because there's a death penalty in Indonesia, Malaysia and I'm trying to revive it", he said during his Sunday speech in Myanmar.

"The drive against corruption, criminality, and drugs will resume and it will continue and it will be brutal", he declared.
