  • Trump touts his dealmaking skills as solution to South China Sea dispute

They were anxious that the United States intervention in the southern Philippines could worsen the situation, which is still recovering from battle against Islamist militants.

U.S. President Donald Trump landed in the Philippines on Sunday for a summit of Southeast and East Asian nations, hours after offering to mediate on competing claims to the South China Sea that have long stoked tensions in the region.

Trump will meet Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte in Manila, where he will try to shore up relations strained by the mercurial Duterte's notorious anti-U.S. sentiment and his enthusiasm for better ties with Russian Federation and China.

Duterte goes into the event appearing confident that even his most outrageous remarks and actions will be ignored, having boasted in the lead-up he once stabbed someone to death, while at the same time proposing to host a global human rights summit.

The report added that Duterte had pledged that his nation will handle "maritime issues through bilateral channels in accordance with the consensus reached by the two sides".

Duterte said as the fulcrum of several integrated mechanisms such as ASEAN, APEC can be instrumental in promoting more inter- and intra-regional trade, investment and people-to-people connectivity between other economic blocs.

Ahead of his trip to Vietnam, Duterte said he would ask his Chinese counterpart what Beijing's intentions in the region are.

In December previous year he claimed to have personally shot dead criminal suspects to set an example to police during his time as mayor of southern Davao city, France 24 reported. A real person, a rumble, a stabbing.

"When I become president, I'll order the police and the military to find these people and kill them".

"When I was a teenager, I was in and out of jail", said President Duterte.

The Philippines would also be the last stop of Trump's five-nation swing in Asia.

"Your timely assistance to my country helped us replenish the old arms and the spent bores that were fired repeatedly and we have a new stock", he said, in transcripts sent to Manila by the presidential communications office. "What the President is doing is being effective".

In a letter to Trump, members of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission on Capitol Hill urged Trump to address the extrajudicial killings.

Duterte can expect blanket support from his ASEAN colleagues, many of whom are also shadowed by human rights controversies. "It is paramount that human rights violations not be the consequences of the Philippines" "war on drugs'".
