Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go shared photos of Duterte and Abe inside the house of the chief executive.
“Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe inside the simple home of Pres.Duterte. We also showed him how the President enjoys the comfort of his own bed, including his old and favorite mosquito net,” Go said in a Facebook post.
The President had said he can’t sleep without his mosquito net even if he was staying in hotels.
Go said Abe and his party, joined by the President and other officials, had biko, suman, kutsinta and mongo soup. The two leaders, he said were at the President’s house for 45 minutes.
Abe arrived in the country on Thursday afternoon for a two-day official visit. He is the first head of state to visit the Philippines under the Duterte administration and also the highest ranking foreign public official to ever set foot in Davao City. CDG
