|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on Philippine President Aquino's Response to the Hong Kong Hostage Incident|
Q: Philippine President Aquino reportedly said on October 23 that he did not talk about the Hong Kong hostage incident with Premier Li Keqiang during their brief meeting on the sidelines of the meetings of East Asia Leaders. What is China's comment?
A: Relevant remarks by the Philippine side is totally untrue. I have already briefed the journalists on October 11 about Premier Li Keqiang's short discussion with President Aquino on the Hong Kong hostage incident in Brunei on the sidelines of the meetings of East Asia Leaders in the VIP room of the venue. We once again urge the Philippine side to earnestly respect the feelings of the families of the victims, take this issue seriously and offer a fair and reasonable solution as soon as possible.
