The President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte, Abrahamse Barack Obama for saying Filipino executed criminals, brought the American leader to apologize. Duterte regrets that his comments about Obama were perceived as a personal insult.
Philippine leader expressed regret that his comments were interpreted as “personal attack” against Barack Obama. “We will smooth out all the contradictions stemming from national priorities and concepts”, — reads the statement of Duterte read by his press Secretary.
We will remind that earlier the US President said at a meeting with Rodrigo, Duterte he intends to raise the issue of killings of two thousand people on the island state in the fight against drug trafficking.
In response, the head of the Philippines advised Obama not to interfere in the internal Affairs of his country, and at the same time called the American counterpart “son of a bitch”. “Son of a bitch, I curse you in this forum” – threatened in the heat of the politician. He stressed that he is the leader of a sovereign state and is responsible only to his people.
His offensive remarks Filipino leader did before flying to Laos, where he planned to hold talks with Obama. However, after the incident, the head of the White house to meet with Duterte refused. Now it became known that the two leaders agreed to reschedule the meeting to a later date.
The United States often criticized the President of the Philippines for the excessively rigid, in their opinion, methods of combating drug trafficking. So, according to media reports, since June 30, the country had executed more than two thousand people, suspected of trading in illegal substances, and this was done without any litigation.
