Shinzo Abe's Accidental Somersault on Golf Course With Trump Goes Viral

At Sunday evening's Asean gala dinner, held in Manila to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, US President Donald Trump, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and their fellow Asean leaders wore the barong tagalog, a long-sleeved white or off-white shirt that is considered the Philippines' formal attire.

Manila, Nov. 13 (Jiji Press)-Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzō and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang agreed Monday to boost efforts to improve their countries' relationship as this year marked the fortieth anniversary of the normalization of bilateral diplomatic relations.

Since February, North Korea has launched 22 missiles during 15 tests. "It is bad. It puts a strain on everybody, not only on Japan but all over the world", the President said.

Despite remote possibilities of the Philippines getting hit by a North Korean missile, Duterte told Abe that Manila is with Japan in pressuring the hermit state to stop its nuclear and missile program.

"He should realize that he'd be responsible for ending life on this planet if his mind goes out of control".

"That is why we are persuading him, maybe pleading him to stop the aggressive posture".

"Peace and stability have underpinned the prosperity of billions of people over many decades and we're going to work together to ensure we maintain it", the prime minister said.

He also thanked the Prime Minister for arranging his courtesy call withEmperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan, a memory he said he'll cherish forever.

"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.

He expressed gratitude for Japan's assistance for Marawi rehabilitation and planes they gave to the Philippine military.

A loan agreement is expected to be signed in January after the exchange of notes, according to a timeline of of the subway from the Department of Transportation.
