Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin took to Twitter to express his condolences.

"I'm out of Twitter from grief over the death of a sea-green incorruptible," he wrote.

He said the former president was "brave under armed attack, wounded in crossfire, indifferent to power and its trappings, and ruled our country with a puzzling coldness but only because he hid his feelings so well it was thought he had none".
