During his latest visit to Indonesia, Danish prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen presented Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo – who also happens to be a metal fan – with a signed box set of Metallica‘s ’86 classic Master of Puppets.
As The Jakarta Post reports, Jokowi gave Rasmussen a rencong – a traditional dagger from Aceh – in return.
Widodo briefly stated:
“Prime Minister Rasmussen understands my favorite [music].”
