Naglabas ng paglilinaw ang British embassy kaugnay sa inilabas na travel advisory sa kanilang mamamayan na huwag magtungo sa Mindanao.
Sa liham na ipinadala ni British Ambassador to the Philippines Daniel Pruce kay Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, nilinaw nitong walang bago sa inilabas nilang advisory.
Nag-update lamang aniya sila sa naganap na pambobomba sa Cotabato City noong Disyembre 31, 2018.
“In the light of media reporting, I wanted to clarify that the UK has not recently changed its travel advice for the Philippines. Indeed, our current advice against all travel to Western Mindanao and all but essential travel to Eastern Mindanao and Southern Cebu has not changed since January of 2017. We did publish a factual update on December 31, 2018 recording the blast in Cotabato City,” ani Pruce sa kanyang sulat.
