Pinal na ang kasunduan sa pagitan ng bansang Russia at Pilipinas patungkol sa pagbili ng bansa ng 20 milyong doses ng Sputnik V vaccine matapos ang usapan nina Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte at President Vladimir Putin kagabi, Abril 13.
Naging makabuluhan ang 30 minutong usapan ng dalawang pinuno na parehong nangako ng mas maigting na kooperasyon sa laban kontra COVID-19.
“The Philippines is ordering 20,000,000 doses of Sputnik V from Russia, and both leaders stressed the importance of ramping up global production and supplies,” pahayag ng Palasyo matapos ang isinagawang Duterte-Putin telesummit.
Ayon pa sa Palasyo, “President Duterte and President Putin underscored the need for continuing and strengthened collaboration to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Dagdag pa nito, “Both Presidents discussed the global and regional vaccine landscapes, noting that vaccines such as Russia’s Sputnik V must be mobilized to as many countries as possible.”
Hangad naman ni President Putin na mas tumatag pa ang kooperasyon ng parehong bansa sa iba pang aspeto tulad ng agrikultura at trade and investments.
“President Putin highlighted the positive trajectory of Russia-Philippines relations and emphasized the many opportunities for greater cooperation in the fields of trade and investments, agriculture and energy development even as both countries work on further enhancing political-security cooperation,” pagbabahagi ng Palasyo.
Malugod ding tinanggap ni Russian President Putin ang paanyaya ni Pangulong Duterte na bumisita sa bansa matapos ang pandemya dulot ng COVID-19.
