Trump, Putin swap warm greetings in Vietnam

Addressing the Filipino community in Da Nang, he said he had killed a person during his violent teenage years, when he said he was in numerous fights and "in and out of jail".

Police have maintained that they only kill criminals in self-defence, but Amnesty International has accused them of shooting defenceless people dead and hiring assassins to murder drug addicts.

The students also called on Duterte to reverse all previously signed US-Philippines treaties and end the neoliberal policies they claim resulted in socio-economic and political problems.

With Duterte set to host world leaders in Manila on Sunday, human rights groups are concerned that U.S. President Donald Trump and Asian leaders appear unlikely to criticize his violent rule. "I have stated before and I was not lying, I would not entertain talks about military or anything except that I had to thank Mr. Xi Jinping for the timely and crucial help that he extended to our country when we were fighting the siege of Marawi", he added.

But China and Russian Federation, whose relations with the Philippines have vastly improved in recent months, donated a total of 11,000 assault rifles and trucks.

Putin, in his first meeting with Duterte on the sideline of the AELM, promised to back the country's combat against terrorism.

"And he will come through loud and clear", the official said, adding the USA president "will be talking specifically about the importance of navigation and expressing concern about the militarization of features in the South China Sea". "That was when I was just 16... what more now that I'm a president?"

The official said the Philippines and the United States are working on a joint statement to be issued after the two leaders meet.

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

"There are a range of issues that I could bring up with him, and I may bring [the killings] up with him if I have the opportunity, but there is no formal meeting with him", he told reporters Saturday.

As the death toll from his drug war nears 1,000, Duterte vows no let up.

The firebrand leader consistently generates headlines for his abusive language and incendiary comments defending the drug war. And nearly all of them also have the same problem. "World summit on human rights".

Human rights group Karapatan said a meeting between Duterte and Trump on human rights will be "one big sick joke".
