Bibisita si Russian President Vladimir Putin sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon sa Pilipinas matapos ang imbitasyon ni President Rodrigo Duterte.
“President Duterte officially invited President Putin to visit the Philippines,” pahayag ni Russian Ambassador to the Philippines Igor Khovaev sa “In Focus” news forum sa Quezon City.
Hindi naman nito idinetalye ang nakatakdang araw ng pagbisita.
“The invitation of President Duterte was accepted by President Putin with gratitude,” giit pa ni Khovaev.
“At this moment, I can only express my hope that this visit will be paid as soon as possible. When? I don’t know, but we will do our best to arrange his visit as soon as possible,” dagdag pa nito.
Maaalalang lumagda ang Pilipinas sa P620 milyong halaga ng business deal sa Russia kamakailan.
