The indignation of the President of the Philippines caused the remark of the UN Secretary General ban Ki-moon, who accused the policy in violation of human rights.

The international community has repeatedly criticized Duterte for the overly rigid methods of struggle against drug trafficking. In particular, the Philippine leader promised to kill drug dealers and feed their bodies to the fishes in Manila Bay.

“I said to myself – it’s another fool. I will continue to campaign against criminals, I do not pity them,” retorted Rodrigo Duterte, reports RIA Novosti.

Earlier from the President of the Philippines went to Barack Obama, who also alleged violations of human rights. The President of the United States intended during the meeting with Duterte to address the subject of the massacres of Filipinos during the anti-drug campaign. Often suspected of trading in illegal substances shot in the streets without trial.

In response to Duterte called American counterpart “son of a bitch” and promised to curse him at the G20 summit. Later, the politician on his word refused, and expressed regret that his comments about Obama were perceived as a personal insult.

Today, the President of the Philippines stated that the expression putangina can not be translated literally as “son of a bitch”, and his anger was caused by “crazy people, the U.S. state Department,” not the White house.
