Japanese Premier Abe to visit PH this month

According to President Rodrigo Duterte, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to arrive in the Philippines within the month and it would be friendly visit and a show of solidarity.

“(It’s) just a friendly visit. It really is official because he is an official, he is the Prime Minister.” Duterte said in an interview.

“But it was passed on to me as a private confidential matter and during our talks which was really one of the longest that I’ve had had with a sovereign chief of state,” the president said.

President Duterte also said,” was really interested in helping us (through) the investments.”

Duterte also added that Abe was also interested in visiting Davao City.

“Actually, Davao City has the biggest number of Japanese descended Filipinos because the Japanese came here…. way, way back, 1902, dumating sila sa Davao and they developed the Manila hemp, iyong abaca ngayon,”

“ I really do not know, I have to consult the [Department of] Foreign Affairs. He might want just a very modest thing, si prime minister. And I’m not even at liberty although nag-landing iyong isang eroplano doon na may Japanese flag. But… I’ve not been apprised by the security guys of how it will unfold,” he said.

“So to me he just wants a show of solidarity. So until such time then, however late it may be I will inform the nation.”
