NEW PEACE MONITORS IN MINDANAO BY WEDNESDAY

0

The International Monitoring Team (IMT) that helps implement the government and Moro rebel ceasefire agreement will end their tour of duty on Wednesday and a new set of peace observers will replace them, officials said. The tour of duty of the current IMT led by Malaysian military officers will end on March 12 and IMT Mission 9 will replace them, the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process said. Tasked to monitor the implementation of GPH-Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) ceasefire agreement, civilian protection, rehabilitation and development, and socio-economic agreements between the government and the MILF, the IMT helped eliminate unnecessary skirmishes between government forces and Moro rebels. The tour of duty of the team expires in March but both peace panels agreed to extend its mission until March 2015.
