Trump, Duterte meet for first time at APEC summit

DANANG, Vietnam: US President Donald Trump met Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte for the first time at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam on Saturday. The meeting was "short but was warm and cordial," Duterte's spokesman, Harry Roque, told reporters. "The leaders were generally pleased to finally meet each other in person," he said. Trump told Duterte "see you tomorrow," Roque said. Both the leaders are in Danang, Vietnam for the APEC summit. Trump will head to Manila on Sunday for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit on the last leg of his 12-day Asian trip. Duterte - sometimes described 'Trump of the East' because of his brash and mercurial style - had said on Wednesday that he would tell the U.S. president to "lay off" if he raised the issue of human rights when they met.
