PM Modi, Australia PM Turnbull hold bilateral meeting — ASEAN Summit

U.S. President Donald Trump left talks with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during the gala dinner marking ASEAN's 50th anniversary in Manila Philippines

U.S. President Donald Trump skipped the plenary session of a summit of East and Southeast Asian leaders in Manila on Tuesday because of scheduling delays, but he said his marathon trip to the region had been a success.

U.S. President Donald Trump, second from right, reacts as he does the "ASEAN-way handshake" with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, left, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, second from left, and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on stage during the opening ceremony at the ASEAN Summit at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Monday, Nov. 13, 2017, in Manila, Philippines.

Duterte, 72, emerged from one of the bilateral meetings late Monday and told reporters he was "a bit" exhausted from day-long engagements. The two men also shared a laugh in the meeting when Duterte called reporters "spies", the Associated Press reports.

After his performance, Duterte said he sang the song for Trump.


More than 3,900 pushers and users have been killed in the war on drugs that Duterte declared when he took office a year ago.

In a meeting Monday, Trump praised Duterte's hospitality and said nothing about human rights, including the thousands killed in the country's blood drug crackdown.

Duterte cursed Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, previous year for raising concerns about the war on drugs and he subsequently declared that he was breaking with the United States, a close ally of the Philippines since World War Two. The talks come a day after officials of four countries - India, the US, Japan and Australia - held a meeting amid signs of an emerging "Quadrilateral" that is being seen as a mechanism to check Chinese military and economic assertiveness in the Asia-Pacific region, which is now being referred to by President Trump as the "Indo-Pacific" region.
