    Phl gov't to leftists: Let's talk peace

    THE Philippine government on Thursday said it is not closing its door to another negotiation with leftist insurgents to move the peace process forward.
    Speaking for the Philippine government, Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said President’s peace adviser issued a statement last week that they will continue to seek ways to reach a peace pact with the communist group.
    The peace negotiations between the government and Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) have been stalled when the two parties failed to agree on some issues.
    The CPP-NPA-NDF’s primary demand is the release of communist advisers from government detention centers as a precondition for the start of another round of peace discussions.
    Despite the hurdles, peace could still be achieved,” Coloma said.
    With regards to the threat issued by the CPP to intensify its campaign against government security facilities, Coloma said the military and the police are ready to defend the people and maintain peace.
    “We have our security forces and law enforcement authorities to face those threats. The armed forces is there to protect our people and the communities,” Coloma stressed.
