Nov 13, 2017 @ 15:44

President Rodrigo Duterte has thanked international entities for helping end the crisis in Marawi City and in the rehabilitation of the strife-torn area.

In his speech at the ASEAN Summit’s opening ceremony Monday (November 13), Duterte said the government is already in the process of helping the people get back on their feet after the conflict.

“We thank our international partners for providing assistance in dealing with the situation in Marawi City. Our ASEAN brothers provided support by sending relief items for the benefit of the internally displaced persons while others provided valuable assistance and bolstered our military campaign,” he said.

China and Japan are among the countries that have pledged to provide assistance to rehabilitate Marawi City.

After close to five months, the conflict in Marawi City ended last October following the death of terrorist leaders Omar Maute and Isnilon Hapilon.
