An ultimatum was dropped by 7 members of the European Union who visited Manila to give out their warning. They warned that the Philippines is risking an important trade deal with the European Union should the killings continue.

On the contrary, the EU released an official statement denying any involvement in the visit of the 7-member delegation of the international parliaments that warned the Philippines about the trade consequences.

According to the EU, the 7 controversial representatives who visited the Philippines last October 8-9 are from Germany, Italy, Sweden, United States, and Australia.

One was a member of the European Parliament, but the official statement said that "it is therefore not correct to label the visit an 'EU mission'."


Meanwhile, Edgardo Angara, Special Enjoy to the EU described the statement of the said 7-member delegation that warned the Philippines of a sour fate regarding a trade deal if the killings do not stop as a "gross misinterpretation."
"None of the gloomy predictions the 7-member delegation said in Manila was ever suggested at all in Brussels. And the MEP (Members of the Parliament) among the 7-member delegation do not represent the governing majority in the EU Parliament,"
On the contrary, Angara shared that all the parliaments they spoke with when he visited Brussels with Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez welcomed them and they even appreciate the Philippines's openness to dialogue and consultations.
"They expressed much appreciation for President [Rodrigo] Duterte’s initiative to set up a monitoring center and the invitation he extended to European Council President Donald Tusk to attend the Leaders’ Summit in Manila in November,"
