"This would allow Canada to become a full and dynamic partner of ASEAN".

Trudeau said that while Canada has always been a part of the Asia- Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) like the Philippines, there are other issues that would need to be addressed aside from economy. "Ultimately, Canada believes that the benefits of growth must be felt by everyone - not just our wealthiest citizens".

Trudeau also explained that Canada was not able to collect the garbage back due to legal restrictions on the part of their country which he noted were already resolved.

"Canada will continue to support ASEAN's humanitarian and political efforts to find a sustainable and just solution to the ongoing crisis".

USA soldiers wounded after an IED attack in Afghanistan
President Donald Trump recently increased troop numbers in Afghanistan, where the United States has been at war for 16 years. Kandahar police said the attack was one of the biggest attacks by the Taliban in the last few years.

Despite his rockstar-like arrival on Sunday, environment activist Greenpeace urged Trudeau to take back the garbage that Canada dumped in the Philippines four years ago.

"North Korea must immediately cease all activities that go against its global obligations and United Nations Security Council resolutions", he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he discussed human rights issues with President Rodrigo Duterte at Canada's summit with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Tuesday.

The official website of the Prime Minister also stated that Trudeau will meet a Filipino-Canadian innovator of e-jeepney vehicles and will participate in a panel discussion in Gender-Responsive Economic Actions for the Transformation of Women (GREAT Women) Project, both events slated in Makati City today. "Those regulations and those impediments have now been addressed, so it is now theoretically possible to get it back", he said at a press briefing at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

Trump unlikely to rebuke Duterte for drug war killings
Duterte told a gathering a businessmen in December 2016 that as mayor of Davao he prowled the streets and killed people. The much-anticipated meeting between two of the world's most controversial leaders is set to take place on November 13.

The leaders do not have any one-on-one meetings scheduled during Trudeau's time in the Philippines.

Trudeau was asked later in the day about why he's interested in expanding Canada's engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.

The opportunity arrives at a time when Trudeau is making efforts to raise Canada's global profile and demonstrate it can wrestle with complicated challenges, at home and overseas.

Trudeau said Canada's stance is to "emphasize rule of law and ensure protection for all citizens".
