"Duterte's Haell", a Field of Vision documentary on the Philippine president's drug war, directed by Aaron Goodman and Luis Liwanag. Bishop had previously criticized the drug war.

"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.

Putin, in his first meeting with Duterte on the sideline of the AELM, promised to back the country's combat against terrorism. "I think you'll see a number of things that come out of the two summits, as well, in the way of cooperation and initiatives between the United States and ASEAN and some of the individual member states", the official said.

More recently, Duterte asked the head of his country's Commission on Human Rights if his concern over the killings of teenage criminal suspects stemmed from his being a "pedophile". Public consultations are now underway on a deal that could give Canada access to the Asian-Pacific market should the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks go south.

The Philippine president also said his government opted for Russian weapons because US weapons were harder to procure.

"We will obey if we are asked", said Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre, referring to the projected banning over the entry of US Congressmen James McGovern (Democrat) of MA and Randy Hultgren (Republican) of IL.

The ASEAN market countries have "huge populations with increasingly large middle classes that are hungry for the types of high-quality products that Canada produces", he said.

Since he became president, thousands have died in a nationwide anti-drugs campaign that human rights defenders say is being carried out in a culture of legal impunity.

And yet lawmakers from the European Union believe there are "credible reports" that the Philippine police force has been falsifying evidence to justify extrajudicial killings that overwhelmingly target the urban poor.

"Duterte will enjoy the gift of tacit silence from East Asian leaders on his murderous drug war during the upcoming summit", Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director Phelim Kine told AFP.

Philippine Senator Leila de Lima, arrested on drug charges, waves to supporters as she arrives to appear before a local court in Muntinlupa, Philippines, last month.

Mr Duterte, whose record in office earned him the nickname "Duterte Harry", remains popular with a majority of Filipinos.

"Human rights, son of a b***h", he said at the time. "We've demonstrated that we engage constructively with all sorts of people around the world", he said.
