Philippine protesters burn Swastika-shaped effigy of Donald Trump

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. "There was only a rather lengthy discussion of the Philippine war on drugs with President Duterte doing most of the explaining", according to Duterte's spokesperson Harry Roque.

Trump and Duterte were joined by more than a dozen other leaders from Southeast Asia, Australia, Canada, Russia and India.

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

A Philippines government spokesman later said human rights were not raised but White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the topic was mentioned briefly.

Duterte has come under fierce criticism from human rights groups for overseeing a violent drug war complete with extrajudicial killings.

We are your ally.

Mr Trump replied: "We've had a great relationship".

During remarks to reporters, Mr. Trump also said he and Duterte have "a great relationship" but avoided questions regarding human rights issues. This has been very successful. "And the ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) conference has been handled beautifully by the president in the Philippines", according to Reuters reports. Duterte then called the reporters "spies", which made Trump laugh. "This not a press statement".

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

The protesters say they are concerned the leaders are not giving human rights enough attention and will not be addressing poverty in the region as they would like to see it.
