Eighteen leaders of the East Asia Summit donned traditional Laotian costume as they attended a gala dinner in Vientiane, Laos on Wednesday. Both U.S President Barack Obama and Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte attended the event after U.S. officials canceled a meeting between the two. Duterte had been critical of the US which prompted a cancellation of their meeting. Philippine officials said the two leaders met informally.
