Duterte gets investments, jokes

The Inquirer has a colorful article on Duterte's trip to India seeking investments and cooperation.

for example, we might start getting more generic medicines from India, and got more promises to invest in renewable energy and IT projects.

Then came the "colorful" part:



The official agenda out of the way, the President was back in his usual element in a speech addressing Indian investors just before his flight home.
In a semicoherent rant, Mr. Duterte took on the Islamic State (IS), local drug traffickers, US imperialism and Kim Jong-un...
Though he did not address the alleged threats against him by the IS, the President referenced its promised reward of virgins in heaven to extremists who would die for their faith. He should also lure foreign investors to the country by promising them virgins, he said. He followed this up by saying that he’d rather have his virgins here than in heaven.
Reprising his earlier rants against the United States and the United Nations, President Duterte slammed the United States for “acting like the conscience of everybody and trying to police everybody,” and the United Nations for having “no purpose at all.”

in other news, local activists asked Canada to take back garbage they dumped in the Philippines.

No word who will pay for it
