MANILA, Philippines—The death of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo is a loss to the peace process in Mindanao, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front said Wednesday.

Mohagher Iqbal, chair of the MILF peace panel, said Robredo’s demise was not only a loss to his family and friends and to the Aquino administration “but also to the peace-making in Mindanao.”

He said Robredo was a strong supporter for the peaceful settlement of the armed conflict in the south.

“I (knew) Robredo personally when we happened to be invited at a forum on peace process in Penang, Malaysia earlier this year and even at first impression, he is an amiable person,” Iqbal said in a statement posted on the MILF website Luwaran.
