the filipino president pulled out all the stops at a gala to open the summit on sunday. i mean. good news for you thank the orders of the. united states. but some say detectives not the only one hitting the wrong notes ahead of the summit filipino rights groups urged trump to confront a terror takeover his war on drugs a crackdown that's left thousands dead over the past year but if there was any criticism from trunk it was not on display in manila trump showered his host a self-proclaimed trailer with compliments. and i want to thank you for your incredible hospitality and the show last night the talent show i assume mostly from the philippines was fantastic thank you. the camaraderie did not go down well with
6:06 pm
everyone police used water cannon to scare off angry protesters. we believe that the meeting will not bring any benefits for the filipino people but the right . course and the human rights are created in the philippines and tried to be the bearers heartbreaks not to get the reference to think the white house said the two men's meeting focused on trade and fighting the so-called islamic state it said human rights came up briefly during discussions on the philippines fight against illegal drugs. let's get more in donald trump's visit to the philippines so let's talk to correspondent ana santos in manila hi ana there is conflicting information over whether the issue of human rights was raised in the talks between these two leaders the white house says it was but the filipino government says it was not what are you hearing well the presidential spokesperson had earlier given a briefing two years of media after the bilateral talks between president trump and
6:07 pm
president putin and he said that human rights was not brought up human rights issues not brought out and therefore it was not discussed so that pretty much summarizes what the briefing that we got earlier today and i have to say that you know it's a huge disappointment for the international human rights. community who would hope that president trump would use that as u.n. summit as the venue to drive to the human rights crisis in the philippines that's been brought about by president deterrent as war on drugs what about the reception that donald trump received as detectors government believe he really has one trump over. well it was you're talking about the protesters the message to him is clearly he is not welcome but you contrast that with a welcome that the president of the philippines president of charity has given him and you see really a lot of water you saw a lot of ribbing between the two men joking president child came in a traditional lot he was also if you say been sprayed is using suppressive terms
6:08 pm
like tremendous fantastic so it seems that there is a warm relationship between the two men and that wasn't enjoyed by the predecessor of president trump and we saw some of those images of the protests a but where do most filipinos stand on donald trump well the most filipinos don't trust him i have to stay that. way that we got from a lot of the protesters was. distrust that americans feel for donald is something that they can identify with you have to remember that there are more than three million filipinos that live in america so anti immigrant rhetoric of donald is something that is very hurtful and also you know something that a lot of filipinos are against so they see him as someone who is not an ally of the migrant aspirations of many filipinos all right correspondent ana santos

6:11 pm
there are not on board there were fiercely opposed to a close a corporation denmark traditionally is against and is supposed regarding a closer corporation as well but the others portugal for example lotto or island they didn't say no and this is the most important message here it is an open club it's an inclusive nature germany pushed really hard for that this means that other member states this week they didn't want to commit publicly today they are free to join the club when ever whenever they feel ready and even if they are right now nonmembers they can have a status an observer status in order to get integrated anyway in the process catherine is there the risk that this could potentially become a rival to nato well there were really concerns in the very beginning to be precise not made to itself because the secretary general is thought of fully supports the
6:12 pm
project bought indeed some nato countries a row concerned is this a competition and right now the actual framework is not lay out like a competition nature would still focus on. collective defense in order to safeguard article five bought the european defense corporation will focus on regions where nato has no specific no specific. charges and this is for example africa and there could be an added value or father european union to have read up act and force already there was catherine martin's for us from brussels thank you catherine. france has been remembering the victims of the country's worst ever terror attack that struck paris two years ago pictures of a french president call he paid considerable time today meeting with survivor survivors and mckone and former president francois hollande you see here and then
