President Rodrigo Duterte on the first day of his visit in China, met not only President Xi Jinping but also the famous Hollywood action superstar Jackie Chan.
The photos sent by Malacañang show Duterte and former aide Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, posing with Chan, known for his roles in the movies Rush Hour,Police Story, Shanghai Noon, The Tuxedo, and many more.
The meeting with the Hong Kong action star took place on Thursday in Beijing.
Go said Chan, also United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador, gifted Duterte with a jacket and book.
The actor also invited the President to help with his charity initiatives and attend some events in the Southeast Asian region.
In one photo, Chan can be seen doing Duterte’s signature fist bump with the President and Go.
In another photo, Duterte can be seen receiving an autographed book and Panda stuffed toys with a UNICEF seal from Chan.
The meeting with Chan was not in Duterte’s official schedule for the day, which originally consisted only of the President’s bilateral meeting with Chinese officials and a state banquet.
A private lunch hosted by former economic adviser Michael Yang was also not in the President’s official schedule.
