"For that, we are very, very thankful to you".

Outspoken Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte added to his legendary list of outrageous claims Thursday when he bragged about stabbing a person to death when he was 16 years old. "I'm the president of a country", Duterte protested, referring to the former American president and human rights advocates in the West.

The bilateral talks between Duterte and Putin were held nearly six months since their last meeting in Moscow.

"Let me thank you for your crucial help in our fight in Marawi a few weeks ago".

Duterte said the arms that came from Russian Federation were very accurate and was able to help neutralize snipers of the ISIS-inspired Maute group. "I'd have rumbles here, rumbles there", said Duterte on Thursday speaking with a Filipino community there.

"I will congratulate your guys here who make the firearms - very good, very accurate. Nearly all of my troops because of the sniping, snipers, which were covered in buildings", he added.

"When I was a teenager, I would go in and out of jail".

"Because at that time we were short of arms for the police and we wanted to buy it (sic) from America but because of the nearly equal power of the US Congress and the President, it is always stymied by the legislators", he said. "You told me while you were leaving Russian Federation, you told me that you had to go back and install law and order to attack terrorists that's why I'd like to say that you managed to do just that", he said. "For these reasons, it is paramount that human rights violations not be the consequences of the Philippines' war on drugs", they said.

Noting that economic ties "are at the lower level", Putin said he wanted to see an improvement in the economic relations between the two countries.

Duterte's spokesman, Harry Roque, has since told the British news network that the comment was made in jest. "He has warned against what he has described as another nuclear holocaust and he has encouraged all states to communicate with each other", Roque said, citing the Chief Executive's recent visit to Japan.

"I do remember how you had to cut short your visit to Russian Federation due to terrorist attack in your country", Putin said. "I will tell them, you are too presumptuous".

Duterte and Trump will likely talk about the North Korean threat and the overall security situation in the region, particularly the South China Sea dispute. It's back in their possession now.

"Diversity will always pull us in separate directions, but regional integration anchored on open and free trade will allow us to maximise the opportunities presented by global trends like cross-border flows and digital developments", he told the summit attended by some 2,000 senior officials, business leaders and entrepreneurs. The Philippines is a valuable ally of the United States and major recipients of USA aid.

Duterte is urging Russian Federation to open up the latter's markets for the export of Philippine products. It was just over a look. "We have a problem", Duterte said.

"The West Philippine Sea, as you know, is one of the busiest sea routes in the world".

The bilateral talks followed the conclusion of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit.

Their meeting, alongside Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, was captured in a photograph by Bong Go, special assistant to Duterte.
