Duterte gave the assurance to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe when they both met during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 31 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Pasay City.
At the meeting, Duterte, who chairs this year's ASEAN meetings, assured Abe of his support in Tokyo's campaign against North Korea.
"We need to make North Korea change their policy by enhancing the pressure applied to North Korea to the highest level by all available means, including the full implementation of the Security Council's resolutions", Abe said. "It is bad, it puts a strain on everybody, not only in Japan but all over the world", said Duterte.
According to Duterte, the ASEAN is trying to persuade Kim to stop his aggressiveness as this may bring the world to the point of no return. "The Philippines is about too far but, you know, nobody will save us from a holocaust if it happens", he said.
