By Prince Golez
The Philippine government will send aid to survivors of powerful typhoon Hagibis in Japan, Malacañang said.
In an interview over dzIQ on Sunday, Presidential Spokesperson and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo said the Philippines has been actively involved in helping other countries in need.
“I think that is a given. Every time na merong bansa na nangangailangan ng tulong, lahat ng mga bansa naman nagbibigay ng saklolo nila,” Panelo added.
President Rodrigo Duterte had ordered the Department of Foreign Affairs to coordinate with the Japanese foreign ministry for any possible assistance the government can provide to the typhoon victims.
A report published in Japan Times said the powerful typhoon killed at at least 79 people and left more than a dozen missing.
