Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano hit back at United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein on Friday following reports the latter said Duterte may need "psychiatric evaluation."



In a press release, Cayetano said the Philippines took "grave exception" to Zeid's comments, and countered the world needs more leaders like President Rodrigo Duterte.

"The world actually needs more Dutertes―leaders with empathy; leaders who listen to their people; and leaders who are ready to sacrifice their lives to protect their people," Cayetano said.

He said there was no reason for Zeid's "unmeasured outburst," and it should not be repeated.

Duterte has had rocky relations with the UN and other international rights organizations looking to investigate alleged human rights violations under the country's war on drugs.

Just last week, he had told police to ignore UN human rights investigators if they talk to them about the war on drugs.
