The Russian Federation is eyeing to send a Russian delegation to Palau to explore possible business opportunities here.

In an exclusive interview with Island Times, Russian Ambassador to Palau Igor Khovaev said during his visit to Palau this week that although the plan is still under consideration, he believes that this kind of project can be done.

Meanwhile, President Tommy Remengesau, Jr., during a press conference on March 20, said that there was also a Russian trade delegation that visited the country recently. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
