In the 16 months that Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has been in office, law enforcement officials in the country have reportedly killed almost 4,000 people in an unprecedented crackdown of illegal drugs.
"At the age of 16, I already killed someone", he told Philippine nationals in Danang on Thursday ahead the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. "A real person, a rumble, a stabbing", the 72-year-old told the attendees.
"So the 23,000 that I ordered was (sic) scrapped and 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".
"For Russia, just a small window where we can start exporting our products there".
"I think the President of the Philippines joins the rest of the world in maintaining that there should be freedom of navigation in a very crucial sea passage, sea lane passage", Roque added.
"When I was a teenager, I would go in and out of jail".
Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, meanwhile, said the President expressed he did not want to participate in conflicts between big powers, adding he appreciated that Russian Federation had shown good faith.
"The President uses colorful language when with Pinoys overseas", Roque added, referring to Philippine people. "He does not call me out over my campaign about human rights". "Trump seeks to maintain the grossly unequal relations between the U.S. and the Philippines. We were young men then and we went to this beach and we were drinking and suddenly there was this ... maybe I stabbed somebody to death ... something like that"'. "When I became president".
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****".
