Singaporean PM Lee helps with Duterte’s ‘star’ in Busan

Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on at least two instances helped out  President Rodrigo Duterte during the formal ceremonies at the ASEAN-Korea Summit in Busan, causing light moments between the two leaders.

At one point, Duterte seemed to fidget with what appeared to be star-shaped lamp, prompting Lee to help him put it in place.

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was at Duterte's left looked on as  Duterte and Lee set the star on the table.



A smiling Lee even held up both his hands when Duterte looked at him after they finished the task.

Hours earlier, Duterte would find himself half a step too far from Lee for the traditional linking of arms and hands among the leaders.



Lee would gesture at Duterte to come closer. Duterte, however, would need change the position of his arms before he could do so. —Dona Magsino/NB, GMA News
