Israeli Ambassador Rafael Harpaz paid a courtesy call on Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso on Monday, and said the young mayor has inspired him.
"I was inspired by you,” Harpaz said.
He praised Moreno for his achievements in just a few days, something that cannot be achieved even by officials in other countries.
The courtesy call was Harpaz's second visit, he said.
Moreno gave Harpaz the key to the city, saying that the ambassador is welcome anytime.
He also thanked the ambassador for his continued help for Manila.
Moreno added that as a Catholic, he is excited about visiting Israel soon.
