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.

President Donald Trump ended his swing through Asia hailing progress in advancing his goal of reducing the US trade deficit.

He met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and highlighted their two nations' "deeper and more comprehensive" ties, looking to strengthen a relationship that is vital to the USA vision of an Indo-Pacific region that attempts to de-emphasise China's influence.

"Whoa, whoa", Duterte said, according to a report from the White House press pool. Analysts on the Korean Peninsula said Mr. Trump succeeded in lowering tensions while showing firm resolve in his demand to denuclearize North Korea.

"After the November 8 National Assembly speech, South Koreans are shedding their image of Donald Trump who haphazardly sees South Korea just another faraway country he does not want to understand", he said. "And I'm really proud of that".

Trump says he'll have more to say about trade at the White House later this week.

"In my view", he told The Times, "President Trump has been fueling North Korean crisis by conducting fierce verbal attacks against North Korea's Kim Jong-un intentionally".

"Terrorism and violent extremism endanger the peace, stability and security of our region because these threats know no boundaries", Duterte said, who last month declared victory over Islamic State-inspired militants in the southern Philippine city of Marawi. At the opening ceremony in Manila, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, said that the two days of meetings presented an excellent opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion on matters of regional and global importance.

When the reporters asked Trump whether he would raise human rights at the meeting, Duterte replied with: "Whoa, whoa".

A joint statement after the meeting said the two sides "underscored that human rights and the dignity of human life are essential, and agreed to continue mainstreaming the human rights agenda in their national programs".

More than 3,900 people have been killed in a war on drugs that Mr Duterte declared when he took office a year ago.
