    All is forgiven: Obama and Duterte exchange pleasantries

    The Guardian
    Barack Obama has met his Philippine counterpart Rodrigo Duterte briefly and exchanged pleasantries, officials said, after a meeting between the two leaders was cancelled due to the latter’s crude comments. The two leaders were supposed to meet one-on-one on Tuesday on the sidelines of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean) summit in Vientiane, Laos. However, the US president cancelled the meeting after the Philippine leader warned him and other leaders against questioning his bloody anti-drug campaign with the words “son of a whore”.
    On Wednesday, Obama and Duterte shook hands and talked briefly before attending a gala dinner at the summit.
    “They met at the holding room. They were the last persons to leave the holding room,” the Philippine foreign secretary Perfecto Yasay said, insisting that the countries’ relationship was “firm, very strong.” A White House official said the exchange “consisted of pleasantries between the two”.

    White House cancels meeting after Philippines leader curses Obama

    Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte tore into President Obama with an obscenity on Monday, leading the White House to cancel an upcoming meeting with Duterte. White House officials previously said Obama would confront Duterte about his country's handling of drug dealers, including extrajudicial killings, which are government executions without the benefit of judicial proceedings. "Who does he think he is? I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people," Duterte scoffed in a speech Monday. "Son of a bitch, I will swear at you." Duterte made international headlines in April 2016 with his inflammatory comments on the 1989 rape and murder of an Australian missionary. Duterte also blamed the US for causing the unrest on the southern Philippines island of Mindanao. "We inherited this problem from the United States," he said. "Why? Because they invaded this country and made us their subjugated people."

    Obama to convince Asian partners that TPP will be approved

    US President Barack Obama said on Monday that US trading partners in Asia did not need to be persuaded of the benefits of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, just that Washington would eventually approve the trade pact. Obama has made the 12-nation TPP the centrepiece of a diplomatic "pivot" to Asia, but the prospects for US congressional approval have looked increasingly dim, with both major presidential candidates standing opposed. Administration officials had said that Obama would make the case for the TPP during his visit to Asia, including in a speech he has scheduled in Laos on Tuesday.

    Trade talks in trouble
    The case for the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is strong from an economic viewpoint, but it's a tough sell in the current political climate.

    3 Numbers: ECB’s Draghi and IMF weigh into Brexit
    With the Brexit referendum ahead of us, today's key events for investors will be the European Central Bank president's speech and the IMF's report on the upshot from Britain departing Europe. Both are expected to be supportive of the status quo, but their goals are different - IMF scares, while Draghi soothes.
