“I’m glad the Philippines government lifted its travel ban on #Taiwan. @MOFA_Taiwan thanks all who helped in the process,” Wu said in a Twitter post.

“#Taiwan & the #Philippines are close neighbors & good friends. Diplomacy works. Mabuhay!” he added.

On Friday, the temporary ban on Taiwan was lifted by the Philippine Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases following appeals made by several groups.

The Philippine government had earlier announced the inclusion of Taiwan in the ban of all flights coming to and from China and its special administration regions Hong Kong and Macau as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
