President Rodrigo Duterte is set to visit Russia next week to meet President Vladimir Putin, as the Filipino leader seeks to strengthen defense and trade ties with the rival of Manila’s strongest ally, Washington.
Duterte will be in Russia from May 22 to 26 for an official visit that will seek to strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries, according to Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Maria Cleofe Natividad.
Duterte will be visiting Russia upon Putin’s invitation, which was extended when the two leaders met on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Lima, Peru in November last year.
“We consider this visit as a landmark that will send a strong message of the Philippines’ commitment to seek new partnerships and strengthen relations with non traditional partners such as Russia.”
