Mayor Sara to accompany Duterte in Israel trip only


Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Thursday that she will join President Rodrigo Duterte in his visit to Israel early next month.

But the presidential daughter said she will not accompany the President in Jordan after the Israel trip.

“Yes, I will join PRD (Duterte) on (September) 2-4 only,” she said in a text message.

In Israel, Duterte-Carpio said she did not have a separate official itinerary with that of Duterte.

“In Israel, I will do the same itinerary as the President. I have no separate itinerary,” she said.

She did not say why she will not go with her father in Jordan.

Duterte is set to visit Israel and Jordan on September 2 to 8.
