    Philippines is ready to join a new world order, should it be established by Russia and China, President Rodrigo Duterte said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Philippines could follow in Russia's footsteps by withdrawing from the International Criminal Court (ICC) and join a new world order if it were established by Russia and China, President Rodrigo Duterte said Thursday.

    "If China and Russia will decide to create a new order, I will be the first to join," Duterte said in remarks broadcast by CNN Philippines.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order Wednesday pulling Russia’s participation from the ICC’s Rome Statute, saying the decision was in line with the country’s interest.
