The Philippines deplores the horrific bombing near a popular Hindu Temple in Bangkok where innocent lives have been lost.
The bombing apparently has the intention to sow terror and we condemn this act in the strongest terms.
The Philippine Embassy in Bangkok is in coordination with the hospitals in the area to verify if any Filipinos are among those who perished or have been injured and to provide assistance.
The Philippines stands in solidarity with the government and people of Thailand at this trying moment.
Our people in Bangkok have been advised by our Embassy to remain calm and to observe necessary precautions to ensure their personal safety.
