He was accompanied by, among others, Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence Go.

"How much more", Duterte asked rhetorically of his willingness to kill, "now that I am president?"

According to Duterte, he has renewed his friendship with the two countries. I'm sure he will not take it up.

"Like I said before, you will have to find a soldier or a policeman anywhere in the country where I ordered the killing of a man on bended knees, in surrender, or lying down", Duterte added.

In a news conference after flying back here after midnight yesterday, Duterte said Xi assured him of China's peaceful intentions in the strategic waterway, where Beijing, the Philippines, Vietnam and three other governments have overlapping claims. Nothing to do with military.

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

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.

Russian Federation and China, he continued, support openly our fighting terrorism and drugs.

"They have extended their open support for us in fighting terrorism and drugs".

Duterte said past year he would be "happy to slaughter" three million drug addicts and branded then U.S. president Barack Obama a "son of a whore" for criticising the drug war.

The Philippine leader's record will be under the spotlight next week with Mr Trump arriving on Sunday for bilateral meetings and a summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

"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. "Do not worry.' But as Chairman, I made it a tunnel for the communications to be active", Duterte said.

Human rights abuses are not Canada's only interests at the ASEAN forum in Manila - the country also hopes to improve economic relations with ASEAN, a group that counts Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar among its members. I can not escape that from my duty so I have every right to ask him. "And I believe him because like me, he's anxious about the health and the problem of his countrymen", Duterte added.

Trump offered yesterday to mediate in the South China Sea disputes and his Chinese counterpart played down concerns over Beijing's military buildup and the prospects of war in the contested waters, the Associated Press reported. "Never mind about the human rights advocates".
