What country granted independence to the Philippines in 1898

Spain A+

No country granted independence to the Philippines in 1898 although at least one group there declared them independent.

Emilio Aguinaldo, a Filipino general, politician, and independence leader, declared Philippine independence from Spain in Kawit, Cavite on June 12, 1898 and the First Philippine Republic was established the following year. In the meantime the islands were ceded by Spain to the United States for US$20 million in the 1898 Treaty of Paris as a result of the Spanish-American War. The United States never recognized the First Philippine Republic and the Philippine-American War broke out. It ended with American control over the islands which were then administered as an insular area, so the Philippines passed from Spanish Colony to US posession without anyone granting them independence in between.

In 1935, the Philippines was granted Commonwealth status. There were plans in the works to grant independence over the next 10 years, but they were disrupted when the Japanese Empire invaded during World War II. The US finally granted independence on July 4, 1946 after the end of the war.
