DFA mum on Aquino’s snub of Hong Kong chief’s calls

From the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

====================

MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Foreign Affairs is keeping quiet on the diplomatic blunder that President Benigno Aquino III may have made for being inaccessible to Hong Kong officials at the height of and immediately after the hostage crisis Monday.

DFA spokesman Ed Malaya only referred to the DFA statement expressing the country’s and the President’s “deepest condolences to the government and people of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the People’s Republic of China, especially the families and relatives of the eight Hong Kong Chinese nationals who perished during a hostage-taking incident” in Manila.

In a press conference Monday night, Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang expressed disappointment over the aftermath of the crisis. He also said he had been unable to reach Aquino.

Under such circumstances and as part of protocol, the chief executive of the host country takes the initiative to get in touch with his counterpart.

Tsang said Filipino authorities must provide full account of the deadly incident to the Hong Kong government.
