China has pledged more assistance to rebuild war-torn Marawi City.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi announced the additional assistance consisting of emergency supplies which would be used for the settlement of people in Marawi and the rebuilding of the city.

Wang conducted a state visit to Manila on July 24 to 25, upon the invitation of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano.

The foreign minister said China stood ready to continue its high-level serious commitment in order to build mutual trust and expand all areas of cooperation and support for the Philippines.

The Chinese government last month donated P15 million for the relief and rehabilitation of Marawi City.

Fighting in the city has entered its third month after President Duterte placed Mindanao under martial law on May 23.
