WASHINGTON, Sept 30 The U.S. State Department on
Friday called "troubling" Philippine President Rodrigo
Duterte's comments likening himself to Adolf Hitler and saying
he would be happy to exterminate 3 million drug users.
"America's ... partnership with the Philippines is ...
based on a mutual foundation of shared values and that includes
our shared belief in human rights and human dignity," State
Department spokesman Mark Toner said. "President Duterte's
comments are a significant departure from that tradition and we
find them troubling."
