U.S., China Simultaneously Unload Aid, Donations To The Philippines At Clark

The Chinese and American planes parked side by side on the tarmac and it was a sight to behold.

China 🇨🇳  turned over P370 million worth of arms and ammunition to President Rodrigo Duterte, along with a P5 million donation for the families of slain soldiers in Marawi City.  This is on top of the P15 million it earlier donated to the Philippine government for the rehabilitation and relief operations in the conflict-torn city of Mindanao.

Duterte expressed the Filipino people’s gratitude to both governments. “Change has indeed come,” he said.
