Donald Trump to visit Asia in November, but India not in itinerary

Philippines welcome US President Trump’s visit

However, Cayetano requested the body to send only unbiased investigators and explained Manila's unwillingness to accept Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard who, according to the statement, had already prejudged the human rights situation in the country and even referred to President Duterte as a murderer.

Duterte challenged Callamard to a public debate past year as a condition for her to be allowed to investigate her allegations in the Philippines - a condition which was rejected by her.

Busy levelling threats at North Korea and engaging in verbal repertoire with its leader Kim Jong-Un, US President Donald Trump will be making his first visit to East Asia in November, and North Korea is expected to be high on the agenda.

"We're looking at all of it", the official said.

Abella said the Duterte administration would make sure that foreign guests would enjoy "world-famous Filipino hospitality" during their stay in the Philippines for their attendance to the 31st Asean summits.

The US president will be accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump.

The White House said that Trump will travel to China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines.

In April, the Hockey Hall of Fame presented Strader with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for his contributions as a broadcaster. That game, of course, featured the Red Wings and Blackhawks, so it was a thrill to hear The Voice here in Detroit again.

Trump will travel between November 3 to 14.

"President Trump's visit underscores the improving relations between the Philippines and the United States, which no less than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told me is on an upward vector", he added, saying Tillerson also described relations between the Philippines and the U.S. to be strong and irreversible in his interview by National Public Radio in Washington last Thursday. It underscores the improving American-Filipino relationship.

Duterte was previously invited by Trump to the White House but the President had to turn down the invitation to focus on the ongoing war in Marawi City.

"Through similar lines and sound bites, they have all painted a rosy picture of the human rights situation in the Philippines, while on the ground, the situation is getting worse for communities, with the drug war, the martial law in Mindanao and the continuing implementation of counter-insurgency programs", it added. "He will also emphasize the importance of fair and reciprocal economic ties with America's trade partners".

VIDEO: At the UN General Assembly, Donald Trump warned that the United States will be forced to "totally destroy" North Korea unless Pyongyang backs down from its nuclear challenge, mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a "rocket man" on a suicide mission.

North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests, the latest of which Pyongyang said would be exploded in the Pacific. "He hosted the leaders of Japan and South Korea at the United Nations and spoke by phone with the leader of China earlier this month even as he ordered a sweeping new set of sanctions meant to cut North Korea off from the worldwide banking system", the White House said.
