Kyiv: Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte wants to change the name of the country to Maharlika. This is reported by the local media.
It is known that the leader believes that by renaming the Philippines will be able to get rid of the colonial past.
“Let's change it (name - ed.) ... Marcos was right. He wanted to change it to Maharlika because it is a Malay word,” said Duterte.
It is also noted that the president insisted on changing the country's charter and the transition to a federal form of government.
We recall that the Greek parliament recognized the agreement of Macedonia to join NATO.
