“And the economics, I’m veering towards so many… I’d like to open new fronts with Russia (and) with China,” the President said.
“We have increased in trade and commerce. It’s robust. And maybe if I could start trading with Russia it would be good, it would be that fine,” he added.
The President wants to pursue closer ties with the two giants, as he praised the two countries respecting the sovereignty of the Philippines.

He made this remark, as he explains his dismay over the failure of the United States to respect the Philipines’ sovereignty.
“(US) continues to look at us as vassal state because we’re under Americans for 50 years and they lived off the fat of the land before we got our independence. We went to war against them. So if I cannot get a credible posture from the Americans, I can get it from the Russian and the Chinese government(s), it’s because they respect the sovereignty of the country, which America is totally lacking,” he said.
“I mean, America is not the Philippines and the Philippines is not America. It ain’t that way anymore. And I refuse to dovetail under American foreign policy. They’re always antagonizing the Chinese, and so with the Philippines,” Duterte added.
