Peace talks go into sixth day
MANILA, Philippines—Government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front negotiations went into the sixth day of their current round of negotiations in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday in an effort to iron out differences standing in the way of a comprehensive peace agreement to end more than four decades of strife in Mindanao, the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) said on its Facebook account.
“The GPH and MILF peace panels just started their session today, marking the 6th day of the 38th round of formal talks. Yesterday, the parties once again agreed to extend the schedule of the negotiations, determined and hopeful to finish an annex,” the OPAPP said.
This round of talks was extended for two days upon the request of the government panel, which earlier expressed hope that the wealth-sharing section of the peace accord would be signed before the panels return to Manila.
