Philippines’ president Rodrigo Duterte is the most famous person on the globe now and he has sent a strong warning to the United States president Barack Obama ahead of their meeting.
Duterte sent a strong message to Obama that he must surrender himself for drug test before any discussions are made and if he [Obama] tests positive, he should be ready to be jailed. “If he doesn’t accept this condition, then we are not meeting”- Duterte added.
Duterte and Obama would be meeting in Laos to discuss human rights issues as the two meet each other for the first time.
The two leaders will talk on the sidelines of the East Asia Summit in Laos, starting on September 6. It will be their first meeting since Duterte took power in June.
“We absolutely expect (President Obama) will raise concerns about some of the recent statements from the president of the Philippines,” White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told media when asked whether Duterte’s controversial remarks about vigilante killings, journalists and women would be on the agenda.
