Clarificatory Statement from the EU Delegation to the Philippines
The EU Delegation to the Philippines wishes to clarify that the European Union had no involvement whatsoever in the visit of the seven-member delegation of the "International Delegates of the Progressive Alliance" to the Philippines, which took place 8 – 9 October in Manila, and consisted of representatives from Sweden, Germany, Italy, Australia and the US. It included one German Member of the European Parliament.
It is therefore not correct to label the visit an "EU mission" and we kindly ask publications which have done so to rectify this mistake.
