Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

Un­like the somber poses of many past sum­mits, cheer is seen on the faces of Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Roa Duterte and the rest of the lead­ers from the As­so­ci­a­tion of South­east Asian Na­tions (Asean) mem­ber states and di­a­logue part­ners as they do the tra­di­tional Asean hand­shake at the open­ing of the 31st Asean Sum­mit and Re­lated Sum­mits at the Cul­tural Cen­ter of the Philip­pines, yes­ter­day. The di­a­logue part­ners are New Zealand, Ti­mor-Leste, Repub­lic of Korea, USA, Aus­tralia, In­dia, China, and Ja­pan. Above, Duterte shares a light mo­ment with US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and Aus­tralian Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull dur­ing the pro­gram.
