MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. The embassy of the Philippines in Moscow does not rule out a visit by that country’s President Rodrigo Duterte to Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a spokesman for the embassy told TASS on Tuesday.
"The Philippines is committed to continue building close ties with Russia. There has been an increasing number of meetings and contacts between our officials and businessmen. A meeting between our Presidents would highlight the importance both countries give to this relationship," the spokesman said, adding that "any information on when such a meeting would take place and where, would be given out at a proper time."
Earlier on Tuesday, a number of mass media outlets cited Duterte as saying he doesn’t rule out a visit to Moscow after his official visit to Japan scheduled for October 25-27.
