Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte threatens to slap United Nations critic of drugs war

"I remember you being forced to cut short your visit to Russian Federation due to terrorist attacks in your country, and I remember you telling me that you have to establish order, to attack those terrorists", Putin said.

The controversial leader previously made headlines for making inappropriate comments about the brutal rape-death of an Australian missionary in the Philippines and for calling former President Barack Obama "son of a w****".

In December 2016, the Philippine leader, who is set to meet President Donald Trump and regional leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit Friday, admitted to personally killing suspected criminals in the southern city of Davao, where he served as mayor. "Because they will understand immediately the legal implications", he said, adding that he might also invite "experts in the science of medicine" and the "destruction of the human body". "Why? Because you are insulting me". A real person, a rumble, a stabbing.

"I was just 16 years old then, and it was just over a look", he added, referring to what caused him to stab the person.

PHILIPPINES President Rodrigo Duterte has claimed his country is willing to host a "world summit" on human rights, despite widespread criticism over his administration's deadly war on drugs and undermining of the national human rights commission.

"At the age of 16, I already killed someone".

He said he'd "go in and out of jail" as a teenager.

"You want to ask a question, I'll give you an answer. How much more now that I am president?" he told a local Filipino community in Danang.

Duterte threatened to slap United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions Agnes Callamard if she pursues an investigation into his government's anti-drug campaign.

"What makes the death of people in the Philippines more important than the rest of the children in the world that were massacred and killed?" he asked. "Why are you so fascinated with drugs?"

Duterte lamented the alleged unequal relations between the Asean and the West, as the latter has taken advantage of the former's abundance in resources, importing raw materials from the region then selling them back "four times the cost". "And those who are responsible for it in the countries that did the bombings there like America, then you have recently, France and Russia", Duterte said who is now in Vietnam for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. He told Esquire's Philippines edition that he "maybe" killed someone in a "tumultuous fight" at the beach.

Duterte told Callamard that in tackling the problem on drugs she should not only focus on the police but also on the doctors who prescribed the substance that led to addiction.
