Duterte wants Philippines to host world summit on human rights, threatens to 'slap' UN official probing drug war deaths

President Rodrigo Roa Dutere in his speech at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport prior to his departure for Vietnam

A real person. During a rumble. So again, I thank you very much, the Russian people, and you, Mr. President.

Duterte last month declared the liberation of Marawi City from Islamist militants after 154 days of fighting, which killed more than 1,100 people, including 165 soldiers, and displaced almost 400,000 residents.

The Philippine military last month declared victory in the southern city of Marawi against militants loyal to the Islamic State extremist group, after Russian Federation sent army trucks and thousands of Kalashnikov assault rifles to Duterte.

Asked whether Trump discussed with him the drug-related killings in the Philippines during their casual encounter in Vietnam, where the two met for the first time, Duterte said: "Words of encouragement, not extrajudicial killing".

He then added that, if he was comfortable killing as a teenager, "even moreso as president".

United Nations human rights expert Agnes Callamard has been a vocal critic of the operation and called for the establishment of a "strong independent human rights institution" in the Philippines.

Trailer drops for Spielberg's 'The Post' with Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep
A trailer has dropped for " The Post ", and it looks serious. The movie hits theaters nationwide on December 22. That's an uncommonly fast turnaround.

Well, given Trump's apparent fondness for world dictators, it doesn't seem Trump will likely be bothered by not getting to discuss the topic with Duterte - after all, the US commander-in-chief has praised Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, who is accused of sanctioning the killings of some 800 protesters in a single day, for doing "a fantastic job in a very hard situation".

"I do remember how you had to cut short your visit to Russian Federation due to terrorist attack in your country", Putin said. [He] reprimanded me. Why do you reprimand me?

Duterte said a year ago he would be "happy to slaughter" three million drug addicts and branded then USA president Barack Obama a "son of a whore" for criticising the drug war. He declared a national emergency last week. "Why are you so fascinated with drugs?"

That was before Duerte became president. "Or I will protest, if that is the farthest I can go", he added. "I will slap her in front of you. Why?"

In September 2016, Duterte used a Tagalog phrase that translates to "son of a bitch" or "son of a whore" while criticizing Obama's concerns about human rights, prompting the White House to cancel a planned bilateral meeting with the Philippine leader, though the pair later shook hands at the ASEAN summit. "Because you are insulting me".

"You'll see, it will all come out", he told reporters, "And all the victims of human rights violation are invited to come and air their gripe or grievances".
