Obama finally meets Philippine’s Duterte despite harsh insults

The US President is reported to have had a brief meeting with his Philippine counterpart Duterte. Initially, Obama had cancelled a formal meeting that was planned between the two heads of state after Duterte made insulting comments against the US President. This is not the first time President Duterte is finding himself in a diplomatic row, as he has previously given inappropriate comments on global leaders. The informal meeting between the two leaders was conducted after the ASEANS Summit during a gala dinner at the event.
