President-elect Rodrigo Duterte met with US Ambassador Philip Goldberg, Asif Ahmad of the United Kingdom, and Thomas Ossowski of Germany at the Malacañang of the south.
“Courtesy call lang po.” Duterte’s aide Christopher Bong Go said in a text message.
Goldberg, Ahmad, and Ossowski paid their courtesy calls on Duterte separately at the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) compound in this city.
Ahmad shared photos of his meeting with Duterte on Twitter. He said he gave the incoming President a pair of miniature Triumph motorbike toys as token, while Duterte gave him a Philippine eagle souvenir.
Duterte previously met with the ambassadors of Japan, China, Israel and Russia.
