Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, however, refused to divulge when the phone call will happen as the President’s schedule is “classified as secret.”

“Since sinabi na rin naman ni Senator Bong Go, I can confirm na may usapin po sa telepono ang ating Presidente at ang Presidente ng Russia,” Roque said in an online briefing.

(Since Senator Bong Go already said it, I can confirm that the President will talk via telephone with the President of Russia.)

“Yun lang po ang aking masasabi, I cannot even say kung kailan po,” he added.

(That’s all I can say, I cannot even say when it will happen.)

In December last year, Duterte again invited Putin whom he once referred to as his “idol” to visit the Philippines “as soon as circumstances allow” to reaffirm the ties between the two nations.

Duterte already made two official visits to Russia in 2017 and 2019.
