He told reporters on Air Force One that he had delivered his prepared remarks during the lunch instead of the summit meeting.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I sang uninvited, upon the orders of the commander-in-chief of the United States", Duterte later said, according to the ABS-CBN news channel.

Trump also said his trip had resulted in at least US$300 billion, possibly triple that figure, of deals being agreed. The Indian Prime Minister arrived in the Philippines capital on Sunday for a three-day visit.

However, Trudeau said that during his conversation with Duterte, he "mentioned human rights, rule of law and specifically extra-judicial killings as being an issue that Canada is concerned with".

Duterte has been embroiled in controversies ever since he took the Philippines' presidential seat in June a year ago.

"The meetings were already running beyond schedule so, to avoid further delaying the ASEAN-UN Summit, it was decided that SFA (Cayetano) represent the President while he was meeting bilaterally with the other leaders", he said.
