Following the news, Brexit Secretary David Davis said the country was now on the "threshold of the most importation negotiation" for a generation.

Duterte described his first official visit in Myanmar as an auspicious time between the two countries, noting the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Philippine-Myanmar bilateral relations previous year.

Philippines police say around 2,500 people have been killed in operations where officers were engaged in shootouts, and attribute the remaining deaths to vigilante gangs.

THE Human Rights Watch has reminded President Rodrigo Duterte of his campaign promise of supporting the legalization of same-sex marriage.

"In my discussions, I will convey the Philippines' support for the reforms being undertaken by Myanmar as well as its efforts to address certain problems in these regions".

Duterte again lashed out at Obama, the US State department, and the European Union for raising concerns over his bloody war against drugs.

In a late-night speech in Myanmar on Sunday, he said: 'I don't get these crazies. Why don't you mind your own business? "Do not impose on other countries, especially us", he continued, pointedly expressing this part of his speech in English. The regional legislative body recently issued a resolution condemning Duterte's war on drugs, alleging that the rampant use of extrajudicial killing was resulting in thousands of lives lost without due process.

Inflation surges to 2.3% - highest level since September 2013
Food prices rose 0.3pc last month having fallen consistently for the past two and a half years. That was actually a bigger rise than economists polled before the release expected.

Rather than assure the global community he would follow human rights standards, Duterte said he would instead continue to give police permission to kill drug suspects.

'More people will die.

A bloody drugs war has embroiled on the streets since, killing more than 7,000 people, with numerous dead suspected dealers and alleged drug addicts.

At a forum in January previous year Duterte said he would push for same-sex marriage legislation.

"I have nothing against them, but you have to stick to where God placed you", he said.

"The drive against corruption, criminality and drugs will resume and it will continue and it will be brutal".

Duterte has been an LGBTI supporter for years, voicing his approval of marriage equality during his term as Vice-Mayor of Davao City.
