"We fully share the efforts that your country is taking to eliminate any threat of extremism on the territory of your country. We also highly appreciate your solidarity with the actions taken by Russia to combat terrorism. We are sure that this is the problem through which we must go together," Lavrov said at the meeting with Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano.
According to Lavrov, the implementation of the agreements, which were signed during the visit of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to Moscow, will be also discussed at the meeting.
Lavrov arrived in the Philippines on Sunday to participate in the 50th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) and Related Meetings. The minister has already held a number of bilateral meetings including with the foreign ministers of Turkey, China and the United States.
