Trump was standing on stage at the Manila summit alongside leaders including Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc when they crossed their arms for a traditional group handshake. The two men also shared a laugh in the meeting when Duterte called reporters "spies", the Associated Press reports.

"President Trump expressed his condolences for the tragic loss of life in Marawi City at the hands of ISIS-affiliated terrorists, and congratulated the Armed Forces of the Philippines for its success in liberating Marawi", according to a joint statement released after the bilateral meeting between Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, November 13.

Trade and concern about possible protectionism under Trump's "America First" agenda have come up during his visit to the region, which included stops in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam before concluding in the Philippines.

Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang, President Trump, Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte and Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull cross their arms to shake hands.

PM Narendra Modi is holding bilateral talks with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

"The president was receptive to my comments and it was throughout a very cordial and positive exchange", Trudeau told a news conference.

When Mr Trump was asked if he would raise human rights at the meeting, Mr Duterte said: "Whoa, whoa".

Duterte has been a controversial figure since taking office as president past year, and launching a war on drugs that has killed at least 3,900 people in the Philippines. Trump has previously praised Duterte's handling of his nation's drug problems.

"This is a tremendous concern to Canada and to many, many countries around the world", he said.

The handshake chain is a set piece during the gathering of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) which met in Manila on Monday.
