Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has the & # 39; ice-eating white people & # 39; of Iceland was attacked because of the country's abortion legislation.
Duterte, who is known for making bizarre public statements, lashed out in the Nordic country on Tuesday as he delivered a speech on agricultural reform.

Duterte talked about giving farmers access to adequate contraception when he suddenly switched to English to attack Iceland, Rappler reports.
& # 39; Iceland allows the slaughter of the fetus in the womb for up to six months. Putang ina nila (son of a b ****), & he said.
He switched back to Filipino and added: & Iceland does not eat anything except ice cream. The whites are really not ashamed and yet they teach me what to do. & # 39;
The United Nations adopted a resolution in July this year calling for a full investigation into the drug war in the Philippines, the cornerstone of Duterte's domestic policy.
Human Rights Watch estimates that around 12,000 Filipinos have been killed as part of the action since 2016, with 2500 police-related deaths.
Duterte has also been accused of using or enabling civilian guards and paramilitaries to commit murder of suspected drug dealers and users, despite statistics showing that drug use in the Philippines is lower than the global average.

The resolution, defended by Iceland, was adopted after support from 18 of the 47 countries on the Human Rights Council.
The UN urged the Philippines to cooperate with UN offices and mechanisms by facilitating country visits and & # 39; refraining from all acts of intimidation or retaliation & # 39 ;.
Duterte immediately attacked the resolution and said that Iceland does not understand the Philippines & # 39; or the need for violent action.
& # 39; Your problem is that you have too much ice and there is no clear day or night & he said.
Icelandic law allows abortions until the 22nd week of pregnancy or around the fifth month, regardless of the reason.
Abortion is illegal in the Philippines, where 80 percent of the population is Roman Catholic.
Although Iceland has short days in winter and is currently often covered with ice, it also enjoys moderate summers and is ice-free all year round.
