"We condole with the victims of the China earthquake and offer services we can extend," deputy presidential spokesman Gary Olivar said.

Olivar said the Department of Foreign Affairs is coordinating any possible assistance that could be given to the northwestern province of China.

He also said Manila is relieved that no Filipinos were hurt during the strong quake, which jolted Qinghai's Yushu prefecture on Wednesday morning.
