Trudeau airs concern on Philippine killings

Aside from this, Trudeau also discussed the garbage issue with the Philippine President saying that Canada is very much engaged in finding a solution on that issue.

Echoing calls by other world leaders, Trudeau said North Korea must immediately cease all activities that are against worldwide obligations and the UN Security Council resolutions.

"But I also mentioned human rights, rule of law, specifically extrajudicial killings, as an issue that Canada is concerned with", Trudeau added. I impress upon him the need for respect to the rule of law. "I will always bring that up", Trudeau told reporters in a media briefing after the summit.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has surely touched the hearts of all the Filipinos in Manila where he visited mothers and babies at the Likhaan Center for Women's Health in Tondo.

Trudeau said that during his meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte, they discussed how they can collaborate on "reducing hostage-taking as a fund raising mechanism" for terrorists.

Duterte tends to become easily offended when others call him out regarding his campaign against narcotics, which has caused the killings of thousands of drug suspects and innocent victims. Even so, he explained that it is still important to bring up the issue of human rights. It has to be done in an honest and frank way. We have to talk about the high expectations. But human rights groups said the number is around 13,000.

Duterte is hosting world leaders as the Philippines holds the rotating chair of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) bloc.
