Duterte supports Japan's moves vs. North Korea

Some of the ASEAN members said in response that North Korea presents a serious threat to the region, the spokesman said without going into further detail.

"But I can assure you that in the matter of the interest of your country and mine, we are supporting you against what North Korea is doing", Duterte said.

In brief remarks prior to media being ushered out of the meeting, Turnbull said North Korea's "recklessness" needed to be stopped, while Abe said the most immediate challenge was to ensure regional peace and stability. "It is bad. It puts a strain on everybody, not only in Japan but all over the world", Duterte said.

According to Duterte, the ASEAN is trying to persuade Kim to stop his aggressiveness as this may bring the world to the point of no return. "The Philippines is about too far but, you know, nobody will save us from a holocaust if it happens", he added.

As he declared full support for Japan amid tensions in the Korean Peninsula, Duterte emphasized the special friendship between Manila and Tokyo.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte hold a bilateral meeting at the PICC on November 13, 2017.

Japan and South Korea, East Asian countries that also host United States military installations, are likewise bracing for possible missile attacks.

Despite the United Nations' economic sanctions and extensive condemnation by the foreign community, North Korea has continued to strengthen its nuclear program. "Sharing common traits and values deeply embedded in our traditions should help us develop a culture of tolerance and understanding among us, providing a space for positive dialogue", Duterte said in his speech at the Asean Plus Three (APT) 20th Commemorative Summit held in Manila.

Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III and Japan International Cooperation Agency Chief Representative in the Philippines Susumu Ito also had an exchange of loan agreement on Cavite Industrial Area Flood Risk Management Project.

"Twenty years ago, we played a vital role in responding to the financial crisis in Southeast Asia".

Modi expressed a willingness to partner up on Abe's Indo-Pacific strategy, which espouses cooperation on maritime security and infrastructure development by countries that share the principles of the rule of law and the market economy.

The North Korea issue was also mentioned during bilateral talks between President Rodrigo Dutete and Abe.
