Duterte to skip regional summit

AFP / Share:

MANILA (AFP)- Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is skipping a regional summit in Australia this month, his spokesman confirmed yesterday. Mr Duterte’s decision to snub the meeting comes after he would not cooperate with United Nations investigators looking into alleged extrajudicial killings during the war on drugs, which has left thousands dead. Spokesman Harry Roque said the outspoken leader will not join fellow ASEAN leaders from March 17-18 in Sydney.
