• Diplomats, Sultanate of Sulu tackle Bangsamoro


    The Philippine Ambassadors Foundation Inc., with the Philippine Council for Foreign Relations and in collaboration with the Center for Research and Communication and the School of Law and Governance of UA&P, will host a roundtable discussion (RTD) on issues surrounding the Bangsamoro framework agreement.

    The organizers said the RTD will call together select members of the diplomatic corps and other legal minds, including representatives from the Sultanate of Sulu, at the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) in Pasig City on May 29.

    They added that it will serve as an occasion for the participants to discuss the political, socio-economic and legal consequences of the framework agreement. Ambassadors Lauro Baja, Willy Gaa and Jose Romero Jr. and Rep. Celso Lobregat will provide inputs to the subject. In attendance is HRH Prince Omar Kiram, Grand Prince and Royal Cabinet Senior Minister of the Royal Hashemite Sultanate of Sulu and Sabah.

    The Bangsamoro Basic Framework Agreement, having been signed, will now go to Congress for the passage of a Bangsamoro Basic Law. The results of the RTD will eventually be submitted as possible inputs in upcoming congressional discussions.
