With such a statement, Rodrigo Duterte made on Friday during a conversation with the citizens of his country, writes The Philippine Star newspaper.

“I just need one witness who will say that he has been to heaven and talked to God. God really exists, we have a photo together!” - he said. 

Moreover, the president immediately admitted that he was not an atheist. "I believe that there is a universal mind that controls the entire universe," Duterte added.

To ease the tension caused by his remarks, the Philippine leader agreed to meet on Monday in Malacañang with the Catholic Archbishop of Davao, Romulo Valles.

Rodrigo Duterte is well known for his unpredictable statements. During the election campaign for mayor of the city of Davao, he admitted that he "kissed every woman lips on the lips." Then he also promised to resign if the women asked him to do so.

And a few days before, Duterte suggested that the UN Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, who had criticized the Philippine judiciary, “get the hell out of here.”
