Aquino: Govt-MILF peace talks on track

0

Peace efforts between government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) remain on track despite its failure to agree on the remaining annexes, President Benigno Aquino 3rd said Monday.

“I was assured [that]we are still on track and I didn’t get any information to the contrary,” President Aquino told reporters.

During the 41st round of talks in Malaysia, both parties ended with no agreement on power sharing and normalization, the two last annexes to the Bangsamoro Framework Agreement.

But, despite their failure to come to an agreement,  the President reiterated the government’s commitment to pursuing peace process.


“Tuluy-tuloy iyong ating mga dialogues with the MILF on the annexes, at parang pagkakaintindi ko, maganda naman ang developments on the talks on the last two remaining annexes,” Aquino added.

Aside from the power-sharing annex, also still to be completed is the annex on normalization, which include the decommissioning of arms.

The peace panels already signed the annexes on Transitional Arrangements and Modalities and on Revenue Generation and Wealth Sharing.

The four annexes, along with the framework agreement, make up the comprehensive peace agreement designed to end the decades-old Muslim insurgency in Mindanao. CATHERINE S. VALENTE
