JAKARTA: Aware that President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is an ardent fan of heavy metal, visiting Denmark Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen gave him a box-set of Metallica's seminal record Master of Puppets during a bilateral meeting at the Bogor Palace on Tuesday afternoon.

The gift surprised Jokowi, who considered it an unusual souvenir. In return, Jokowi, gave Rasmussen a rencong (traditional dagger from Aceh).
