“The EU is consistently monitoring the situation and stands ready to assist the Filipino people in this difficult time,” the EU Delegation in Manila said in a statement on Sunday.

“The EU Delegation expresses its sincerest sympathies to the victims and to those severely affected by typhoon Ompong,” it added.
