During an interview, President Rodrigo Duterte said Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to provide 26,000 assault rifles to the Philippines if the deal with the United States won't continue.
But Duterte said the deal with United States should proceed because the negotiation and trasanction was in the final stages and must be honored by both parties.
“Russia offered the sale of the firearms at very soft terms, payable in 25 years and could even be extended for another 25 or at least five years,” the President.
“He (Putin) said, if you cannot buy arms anywhere, go to me. You buy one then take one for free. So I get double,” the President said.
