President Barack Obama on Thursday said he didn't take President Duterte comments personally.

During Obama's speech at the ASEAN Summit in Laos, he said he don't mind it at all because it was a sort of habit to Duterte.


"As I said when I was asked about this in China, I don't take these comments personally because it seems that this is a phrase he's used repeatedly, directed at the Pope and others and so," Obama said.

"I think it seems to be just a habit, a way of speaking for him," he added. 

Obama shared his encounter with President Duterte and he said they just had short talks on Wednesday night.

"I did shake hands with President Duterte last night. It was not a long interaction. And what I indicated to him is that my team should be meeting with his and determine how we can move forward on a whole range of issues," he said.

Obama said that they are looking forward meet again with Duterte for the partnership in drug issue.
