Will Duterte and Trump (and other leaders) do the fist pump?

The summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries in Vietnam put on show the contrasting vision of the "America First" policy with the traditional consensus favouring multinational deals that China now seeks to champion.

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

China will work with Southeast Asian countries to safeguard peace in the South China Sea, President Xi Jinping said on Saturday in a meeting with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who pledged to handle issues with Beijing in those waters bilaterally.

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.

Since Mr Duterte took office in June 2016, more than 7,000 people have been killed in a brutal clampdown on illegal substances, with the leader saying he would be "happy to slaughter" three million drug addicts.

Authorities said no protester was reported injured from the incident.

Last month, Ms Callamard said it was "reprehensible and unconscionable" that Filipino politicians voted to cut the annual budget for the country's human rights body to 1,000 pesos (£15). A person, really. During a fight.

"At the age of 16, I killed someone".

USDA estimates for corn acres planted and harvested remain unchanged, at 90.4 million acres and 83.1 million acres, respectively. NCDEX Soybean Dec futures falls in Thursday on expectation that soybean arrivals have peaked and pressure on edible oil counter.

"This time, with double the enthusiasm and gratitude of my country, the Philippines", Duterte said in his meeting with Putin. "Stabbing. That was when I was 16 years old, just because we just looked at each other".

Duterte told reporters upon his arrival early Sunday morning: "Well, I shook his (Trump) hands".

Then-presidential candidate Duterte outlines plans to eradicate drugs in the Philippines by killing so many dealers it will unleash a boom for funeral businesses.

Addressing the local Filipino community, Duterte said he was not afraid to go to jail, referencing the killing to drive home his point.

The Davao-based solon also scoffed at Trump's racist anti-migrant policy which is targeting not just millions of Filipinos in the USA but millions more of migrants from other countries.

The protesters also denounced the Duterte administration for allocating P15.5 billion for the hosting of the summit.

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, meanwhile, said the President expressed he did not want to participate in conflicts between big powers, adding he appreciated that Russian Federation had shown good faith.

But rights groups warn he may be orchestrating a crime against humanity. "They should deny the architect of this human rights calamity the global recognition he undeservedly craves".
