MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted the invitation to participate in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit due in November in the Philippines capital city Manila, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said.
"President Putin has accepted the invitation of the Philippines’ president to take part in the APEC summit," Lavrov said at the meeting with the Philippines’ Senate President Franklin Drilon who handed over to him the invitation letter.
Russia highly appreciates the efficient work of the Philippines’ presidency aimed at making the APEC summit more successful so that it results in particular decisions that will contribute to normalizing the global economic situation, he said.
