President Rodrigo Duterte urged Filipinos in Myanmar to visit the Philippines to experience that the country is much safer under his current administration.
In his speech before the Filipino community in Myanmar, President Duterte encouraged the community “to go home and find out what’s happening in our country.”
“At least makakalakad na kayo. It will be peaceful. And your children can go out, and your sisters and brothers, and they will be safe,” President Duterte said.
Duterte arrived on Sunday evening at around 6:10 p.m., Myanmar Standard Time, for the honors at the Naypyi Taw International Airport while a cheering crowd of around 250 Filipinos waited for him to arrive at the Horizon Lake View Resort where he delivered his speech.
There was also a short red carpet on the tarmac lined with Burmese honor guards where the President was met by Philippine Ambassador to Burma Alex Chua and Myanmar officials dressed in their traditional garb.
