NEWTON, Massachusetts— President Benigno Aquino III shared a pepperoni pizza with United States Rep. Joseph Kennedy III at a pizzeria that was one of the Philippine leader’s favorites when his family lived in exile in Boston.

Mr. Aquino met with Kennedy at Bill’s Pizzeria in Newton on Monday morning (Monday night in Manila).


Except for a photo coverage, reporters were not allowed at the meeting between the two scions of their countries’ most influential political families.

At press time, details of their 30-minute meeting have yet to be released.


Kennedy is the grandson of the late US Sen. Robert Kennedy and grandnephew of US President John F. Kennedy.

On a recent visit to Manila, the 33-year-old Kennedy invited Mr. Aquino for a meeting if he travels to Massachusetts.

From the Kennedy meeting, Mr. Aquino proceeded to his family’s former home on Connecticut Avenue.

A statement from the Office of the President said that Mr. Aquino met with several American companies on Monday afternoon.

The President is scheduled to give a policy speech at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University at 5pm (5am in Manila).
