"We have been advised by the Philippines that most of the people engaged in the kidnapping of two Canadians have been killed in military operations".

Trudeau earlier said during a regional gathering in 2015 held in the Philippines that a "Canadian solution (was) being developed" to fix the loopholes that allowed the garbage to be shipped in the country.

"I mentioned human rights, rule of law, specifically extrajudicial killings, as an issue that Canada is concerned with", Trudeau said.

"I expressed to President Duterte the assurance of my officials both here and the Philippines and back in Canada that we will continue to work on this and hopefully resolve the situation", he later added.

"I will always bring that up".

Trudeau said that during his meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte, they discussed how they can collaborate on "reducing hostage-taking as a fund raising mechanism" for terrorists. "Throughout, it was a cordial and positive exchange", he said.

Trudeau said Canada's stance is to "emphasize rule of law and ensure protection for all citizens". Even so, he explained that it is still important to bring up the issue of human rights. It has to be done in an honest and frank way.

Nevertheless, Trudeau admitted that Canada is not ideal either as they are also being criticized for human rights violation concerning their indigenous tribes who suffered from neglect marginalization and mistreatment.

Trudeau and other heads of state are in the country for talks with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) leaders as part of the 31st Asean summit and related meetings.
