LAST Friday 16 October 2015, a group of Foreign Ambassadors and heads of mission in Manila was reported to have issued a joint statement to the press and media calling on the Philippine Government “to stay engaged in the Mindanao peace process.”
In this connection, the Philippine Ambassadors Foundation Incorporated, while it notes with appreciation the interest of the diplomatic community in the peace process in Southern Philippines, takes exception to the above action of the said diplomats as improper , unnecessary, and undue interference in a purely domestic concern and disrespectful of the Constitutional processes of their host country.
The Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro and the proposed Bangamoro Basic Law are subject of an ongoing debate among various sectors of Philippine society. The BBL is under consideration by the houses of the Philippine Congress. The CAB is subjudice before the Supreme Court of the Philippines.
