President Obama has called off his meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines after the Filipino leader had warned President Obama on Monday not to question him about extrajudicial killings, or “son of a bitch I will swear at you” when they meet in Laos during a regional summit on Tuesday.

US President Barack Obama has cancelled the meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte, after the incedent. Duterte has been forced to apologise for his offensive remarks before, but this is the first time he has had to confront the reality of his outlandish behaviour on the international stage. Obama, who flew to Laos after attending the G20 meeting in Hangzhou, China, had been set to raise concerns about human rights abuses in the Philippines.
