  • ASEAN Summit opens in Philippines

The Ministry of External Affairs on Monday said President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines has accepted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's invitation to visit India for the 2018 ASEAN-India commemorative summit, along with other leaders of the ASEAN.

"We've made some very big steps with regard to trade - far bigger than anything you know", Trump told reporters.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to help the Republican Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. Since becoming president, Trump has pulled the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a major trade agreement, arguing it would damage America's economic interests.

Trump added that he would wait until his return to Washington on November 15 to present a "major statement" in regard to his Asia trip.

In addition to meeting with Duterte, Trump is expected to attend the Association for Southeast Asian Nations conference on Monday to urge allies to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons programme.

Trump is in the Philippines on the final stop of a 13-day tour of Asia.

Hundreds of leftist activists, students and farmers burned a swastika-shaped effigy of Trump, shouting anti-US slogans demanding that USA troops leave the Philippines.

Tunisia will participate in their fifth World Cup, but first since qualifying four three consecutive tournaments from 1998-2006. Both nations join Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal, as Africa's representatives at the global finals next year.

The Philippines is a former US colony.

But a spokesperson for Duterte denies that the topic was discussed, telling the Associated Press that there "was no mention of human rights".

Speaking to the media, the Secretary (East) of the Ministry of External Affairs, Preeti Saran, said the invitation to Mr. Duterte was extended by Mr. Modi during the bilateral discussions. Since taking office in 2016, the controversial Filipino leader has presided over a bloody so-called war on drugs in which more than 7,000 people have been extrajudicially killed by police or vigilantes.
