“What was apparently cancelled are further meetings between the parties and not the peace negotiations itself,” NDFP chief peace negotiator Fidel Agcaoili said in response to the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) announcement of the cancellation earlier today.
The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating Panel said President Rodrigo Duterte has chosen to go against the people’s clamor for just peace. “The Duterte regime has chosen to go against such clamor. This is its own lookout,” Agcaoili said.
“At any rate, the people are clamoring for a just peace and not the peace of the grave in the struggle for national and social liberation against foreign domination, landlordism and corruption,” Agcaoli said.
