Manila (dpa) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday toured a Russian-guided missile cruiser, which is in Manila for a four-day goodwill visit.

The guided missile cruiser Varyag, accompanied by fuel tanker Pechenge, arrived in Manila on Thursday amid President Rodrigo Duterte‘s vow to strengthen security ties with countries other than its traditional ally, the United States.

Varyag was the second Russian warship to have visited the Philippines during the last three months.

Duterte was accompanied by National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon, Acting Foreign Secretary Enrique Manalo and Russian Ambassaador Igor Khovaev during the tour. 

Varyag, which has 500 men and 16 missiles on board, is part of Russia‘s Pacific Fleet.
