Philippines' Duterte says will never visit 'lousy' United States

Die Philippinen gegen China vor dem Ständigen Schiedshof in Den Haag

However, in April the us president, Donald Trump had invited his counterpart of the philippines in Washington.

But his charge against the United States is also a response to a hearing organised on the eve by a Commission of human rights in the u.s. Congress about the war, that it delivers to the traffickers.

Duterte on Friday got back at his American critic and challenged McGovern to also investigate numerous cases of human rights violations committed by his own country, especially in the Middle East. "We ought to be on the side of advocating for human rights, not explaining them away".

A video of the hearing was posted on YouTube channel of the Tom Lantos Commission.

Duterte has said he detests US officials who supposedly interfere with his anti-drug campaign, even as he begins to see warming relations with Trump, whom he calls a "deep thinker". Trump has extended an invitation to him to visit the U.S. Duterte has yet to accept or reply to the invitation.

The hearing comes after two US senators in May filed a bill restricting the export of certain weapons and equipment to the Philippine National Police as a effect of Duterte's anti-drug campaign.

India should approach US, China to mediate J&K issue: Farooq Abdullah
Look at the places America has interfered in, be it Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq. I don't agree that Kashmir should be discussed with China or Pakistan .

Democratic Party's James Patrick McGovern, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Massachusetts's second congressional district, was the guy that the President was referring to. "Was there no human rights before?" he asked.

"Numbers should be verified and information should be cross checked so that the ensuing conclusions have a solid basis in fact", he added. More than 7,000 deaths have been reported from July 1, 2016, to January 21, according to the Philippine National Police.

President Duterte says he wants reforms in the mining industry in order to compensate communities for damage caused by mining.

In June 30, the administration posted the latest #RealNumbersPH, which contains statistics on the drug war.

The EU lawmakers expressed their concern following a visit to the Philippines this week.

"President Duterte by all accounts seems to not have a high regard for human rights".
