(Eagle News)–President Rodrigo Duterte has said he has been invited to South Korea with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But Duterte, without saying who invited him, in a speech before members of the Filipino community in Tokyo, Japan on Thursday, May 30, said he was  still “trying to figure out if it’s not too much.”

According to Duterte, a chartered flight with Philippine Airlines would cost the government P5 million per day.

The President visited South Korea last year.
