Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 24) — Two officials from Malacañang confirmed Sunday that another Chinese aircraft landed in Davao City yesterday to refuel.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the landing was a "refuelling stop."

"All licenses, permits and protocols (were) issued and observed," he said.

Special Assistant to the President Bong Go, asked about it in a separate event on Sunday, said, "Itong request na 'to was received, processed, cleared by relevant Philippine agencies."

It was the second time this month a Chinese aircraft made a stop in the city to refuel.

On June 8, the first aircraft made a refuelling stop.

In a statement June 10, Roque allayed fears over the landing saying, "As per records of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), the Chinese aircraft made a technical stop in Davao City on June 8 for mere refuelling."

He said the plane followed "established procedures," before heading to Cairns, Australia.
