“We want to discuss trade relations further and especially, the most important one is that… and I’m happy that you’re here because of we can’t find the medicines, and you have it, and it is India people who really afford to buy it,” President Duterte said.
The President also lauded the Indian-made Mahindra cars, which are being used by the Philippine National Police (PNP).
“It’s the one that’s being used and there are a lot of them… almost 1,000 and it’s good and it’s being used now. They are outside, they are guarding this place,” Duterte said.
