    In response to a senator's remarks that China should shoulder the Philippine government's expenses in responding to the COVID-19 crisis, the spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines hereby issues the following statement:

    China and the Philippine are working closely to fight the common threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this trying time, it is ridiculously absurd and irresponsible to make such remarks for the sole purpose of catching eyeballs and for selfish political gains.

    China and the Philippines are friendly neighbors across the sea. China will continue to provide our support and assistance to the best of our ability to the Philippines, and stand together with the Philippine government and people to jointly tackle the challenges and tide over the difficulties.
