Xi and Duterte Are Like 'Brothers,' Philippine Trade Secretary Says

Xi and Duterte Are Like 'Brothers,' Philippine Trade Secretary Says

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

Claiming he was being serious, Duterte said: "Really, it's true".

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

Mr Trump, who has said Mr Duterte is doing "a great job", himself came under criticism during his 2016 presidential run, when he told a campaign rally in Iowa: "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK?"

President Rodrigo Duterte has so much hope in micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the Philippines that he vowed on Sunday, November 12, to pour billions of pesos into funding for them.

Among the leaders present during the APEC dinner were US President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau.

"When I was a teenager, I would go in and out of jail".

"We realized in the regional meetings that the small guy down there contributes a lot to what is really happening before our rise and it's improving the economy", said Duterte.

President Rodrigo Duterte promises to support MSMEs in the Philippines.

"It's about time" for talks with President Xi Jinping on territorial issues, Duterte said.

Roque said the three Vietnamese fishermen are in the custody of the Philippine Navy and are expected to be visited soon by Vietnamese officials.

Speaking to the local Filipino community in the Vietnamese city of Danang on Thursday, Duterte also threatened to slap a United Nations rights rapporteur if he met her, and used obscene language to hit back at critics of his deadly drugs crackdown.

Duterte's spokesman later suggested the president was joking about the stabbing story.

Duterte was infuriated by expressions of concern by then-President Barack Obama's administration about extrajudicial killings in the Philippines. "It was just over a look", Agence France Presse quoted him as saying.

Shortly after those remarks, Duterte proposed hosting an worldwide human rights summit in the Philippines, saying countries like the U.S., France and Russian Federation needed to be investigated for violating human rights. "He is not the [head of the] Human Rights Commission", he said.

Karapatan secretary-general Cristina Palabay said it was hypocritical for the two to even discuss the topic given their tracklist of human rights violations.
