US President Donald Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during a bilateral meeting at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City on November 13, 2017. The two leaders did talk about the country's brutal war on drugs, which has left thousands of people dead.

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

Trump replied: "We've had a great relationship".

A statement from the White House released Monday regarding the joint remarks said that Mr. Trump and Duterte "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 to promote the welfare of all sectors, including the most vulnerable groups".

"Whoa, whoa", Duterte said, according to a report from the White House press pool.

"The conversation focused on ISIS (Islamic State), illegal drugs, and trade".

During a gala for the 20 world leaders in Manila to attend the annual Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit, Duterte took the microphone and sang the love song Ikaw, or You, in a duet with local pop star Pilita Corrales.

The protesters say they are concerned the leaders are not giving human rights enough attention and will not be addressing poverty in the region as they would like to see it.

Mr Trump has faced criticism for praising Mr Duterte during a phone call for the "great job" he was doing to counter illegal narcotics.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will tell the Philippine president there have been too many killings in his war against drugs.
