"I join the whole world in condemning to the highest possible degree the merciless mass murder of civilians in Paris causing France to close its borders and declare a national state of emergency."
"This barbaric killing of innocent and unsuspecting people is unacceptable and unforgivable."
"We stand shoulder to shoulder with the Parisian and the entire French nation and condemn this terror inflicted upon innocents. We are with them in this fight against terror and extremism in the world."
"We are praying that no Filipino was hurt, or worse killed, in the carnage as we wait for the Department of Foreign Affairs for updates on the situation of our nationals in Paris."
"I urge our Filipino brother and sisters in Paris and elsewhere in France to take precautionary measures at all times and consciously ensure that safety is a primary consideration."
