Obama calls off meeting with Philippine leader after ‘whore’ jibe

09_8508

US President Barack Obama has cancelled a meeting with controversial Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who had earlier called him a “son of a whore”.

Mr Obama had said he would raise the issue of drug-related extrajudicial killings in the Philippines.

But Mr Duterte, who has sanctioned the killing of drug dealers, said if that happened: “Putang ina (son of a whore) I will swear at you in that forum.”

Aides say Mr Obama will now meet South Korea’s president instead.

US National Security Council spokesman Ned Price told reporters the US president would hold talks with Park Geun-hye at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) in Laos, where leaders are gathering for a regional summit.
