"I'd have rumbles here, rumbles there", said Duterte, who is in Danang in Vietnam for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

"At the age of 16, I killed somebody", he said. A real person, a rumble, a stabbing. "That was when I was just 16... what more now that I'm a president?"

Russian Federation and China support Philippine's efforts in fighting terrorism and drug crimes, the republic's President Rodrigo Duterte said in a comment on his contacts with leaders of those countries at the APEC summit in Vietnam.

Duterte and Trump, who has adopted a similar strategy to excuse outrageous remarks spoken in earnest as jokes after the fact, could perhaps compare notes in Manila this weekend.

"I think it was in jest", Mr. Roque said. Since then, Philippine police have reported killing almost 4,000 people. More than 2,000 others have been killed in connection with drug-related crimes.

Since he took office 16 months ago, police say they have killed 3,967 people in the crackdown.

On the hardware front, the smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 2.2GHz Octa-core processor , along with Adreno 508 GPU. The selfie camera can shoot images in 4MP low-light mode, Face filters, Beautification mode and Professional mode.


Despite activists having long criticised the United States for what they see as an unrelenting American control over the Philippines, Duterte changed his stance toward the U.S. after Trump's inauguration previous year.

But critics warn the gesture has come to represent the brutalities of Duterte's drug war, which has claimed thousands of lives. Bishop had previously criticized the drug war.

Human Rights Watch has pursued its own investigation and said it found inconsistencies in some police reports, namely instances where police asserted self-defence to justify their actions, "contrary to eyewitness accounts that portray the killings as cold-blooded murders".

In September, the budget for the human rights commission investigating the deaths was cut to 1,000 pesos - the equivalent of $20 (£15).

But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said earlier this week that the pair would not meet unless they had something substantive to discuss.

But Trudeau has said trade deals are about much more than lowering tariffs, he also wants to see "progressive" elements, and a commitment to human rights from potential partners - which is what makes the wave of questionable killings in the Philippines, one of ASEAN's largest members, so potentially problematic for Canada.
