PM Modi, Australia PM Turnbull hold bilateral meeting — ASEAN Summit

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte performs the hit Philippine song

Duterte has been a controversial figure since taking office as president past year, and launching a war on drugs that has killed at least 3,900 people in the Philippines. He has encouraged citizens in Philippines to bring drug peddlers to justice in the country as part of his crackdown on suspected drug dealers and users.

Police have killed nearly 4000 people in operations throughout the Philippines.

Both leaders have publicly praised the other and appear to have a good relationship, with some Filipinos even calling Duterte the "Filipino Trump". However, at some point into the banquet, Duterte, seated next to Trump in his formal Philippines long-sleeved white shirt, suddenly stood up and startled his guests with a vocal performance. But Trump's rapport with Duterte comes during a time when Duterte is being criticized around the world for approving extrajudicial killings in his war on drugs. This has been very successful.

The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) comprises Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The league and Goodell have been working on a five-year deal to kick in when his current deal expires in 2019. Cohen claims Blank told owners that the compensation committee would vote unanimously on Goodell's deal.

When the reporters asked Trump whether he would raise human rights at the meeting, Duterte replied with: "Whoa, whoa. This is the bilateral meeting".

But a spokesperson for the Philippine leader says the topic did not come up during their discussions.

"The conversation focused on ISIS (Islamic State), illegal drugs, and trade".

Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity".
