Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to visit President Rodrigo Duterte’s house in Davao City when the Japanese leader visits the country, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said today.
“He will be here (Manila) on Thursday and he will be in Davao on Friday,” Abella said during today’s press briefing.
“Apparently, they have struck a certain resonant chord between the two of them. Apparently, Prime Minister Abe wants to visit the President’s house. So, it’s interesting,” he said responding on query regarding Abe’s itinerary in Davao City.
Kyodo News previously reported, Foreign Affairs Secretary Yasay said that a number of activities, including visits to an international university being built by Japan in Davao and to historical sites and markers, are being prepared for the first ever visit by a foreign head to the country’s third most populous city, which has over 1.6 million people, Davao City.
