"Itong ex-president ng Colombia, sabi niya, 'Duterte is committing the same mistakes.' We can never [make] the same mistake because I am not [as] stupid as you are," Duterte told a business forum in Davao City.
"That (mistake) is only possible, Mr. ex-President, if I am stupid as you," he added.
In an opinion article of New York Times, Gaviria said "Throwing more and police at the drug users is not just a waste of money but also can actually make the problem worse."
In a speech of Duterte, he pointed out the United States help Colombia in its anti-drug war.
"Kasi ang Amerika, nagbuhos ng bilyon because they were flooding America with...All the supplies of cocaine and heroin came from that country. Anong tinulong ng America dito except to recommend for my prosecution in the International Court of Justice, International Criminal Court?" he added.
