MANILA (UPDATED) - The Duterte administration has informed the European Union (EU) that the Philippines will no longer receive aid from the bloc, ABS-CBN sources said.

This would take effect for future projects, informed sources added.

No other details were given about the decision, as of posting.

Collectively, the EU poured about 200M PHP easily in into the Mindanao region, starting with relief efforts of around 116M for households displaced following the Zamboanga City Seige, as well as ongoing fighting thereafter. As of 2016, another 40M PHP to ensure kids can get education access despite being relocated, displaced or otherwise unable to access schools due to regional violence. Whether or not people agreed with who it came from, those grants were helping contribute to stability operations and mitigate communities falling further into insurgency influence.

And what came of it? Was it really  used towards its stated purpose?

It only mitigates what you said it did IF ONLY.

Five facts about EU grants and Duterte admin’s posturing | GMA News
Quote
For the first time in our modern history, the Philippines has openly threatened to reject any external assistance that is expressly based on specific political conditions. Henceforth, we would turn down any assistance that comes with strings attached -- or that seems to be the plan of the Duterte administration. After all, as a sovereign nation, the Philippines has the sovereign right to resist any “undue interference” in its domestic affairs.
