The two leaders met on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in the Vietnamese resort city of Danang.

Duterte said he sees a very bright future for the relationship between the Philippines and China.

"And, according to my soldiers, the arms that you sent are very accurate and they were able to take care of the snipers that abounded and I lost more..."

Manila: Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte said on Sunday the South China Sea dispute, involving China and five other claimants including the Philippines, was "better left untouched".

The Philippines National Police (PNP) has killed more than 3,800 alleged drug offenders and has paid others to kill thousands more in what may amount to crimes against humanity.

Trump is expected to arrive on Sunday.

"We are looking at helicopters, small arms and equipment for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, but we are still discussing the specifics", said the same military official who declined to be named because he was not authorised to talk to the press.

He also used obscene language to hit back at critics of his bloody crackdown on drugs. A person, really. During a fight.

"For Russia, just a small window where we can start exporting our products there".

Duterte says there are three million drug addicts in the Philippines, and he'd like them all dead.

"When I become president, I'll order the police and the military to find these people and kill them". I was just 16 years old.

"Our country would be better off without Trump's visit because aside from pushing and supporting for more military actions in the Philippines, like more airstrikes especially in Mindanao, he is also engaged in rabid saber-rattling in the Korean Peninsula that would have bad effects in the Philippines if war breaks out", Zarate said in a statement.

Duterte goes into the event appearing confident that even his most outrageous remarks and actions will be ignored, having boasted in the lead-up he once stabbed someone to death, while at the same time proposing to host a global human rights summit. "The most productive [bilateral meetings], by the way, was our talk with President Xi Jinping and President Putin".

His new spokesman, Harry Roque, indicated that may be the case with his stabbing-to-death claim.

Authorities insist police only kill in self-defence, but Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International say officers are carrying out extrajudicial killings.

They accused the US military of committing human rights abuses in Mindanao.
