Barack Obama met quickly with Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday, their two governments said, days after the torch leader marked the US president a “child of a prostitute”.

The experience occurred just before a supper amid a summit of territorial pioneers in Laos, authorities showed.
“They met at the holding room and they were the last people to leave the holding room. I can’t say how long they met,” Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay, travelling with Duterte, told reporters awhile later.

“I’m extremely glad that it happened.”

In a succinct proclamation, the White House said just that “Obama had a brief talk with President Duterte before the ASEAN Gala Dinner in the pioneers’ hold space.”
