    Phl, MILF looking forward to peace

     
    THE government of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) are working to find a fastest solution acceptable to both parties, Presidential Adviser on Peace Process Teresita Deles on Friday said.
    Deles issued the statement as both parties are determining issues in the political agreements that will be included in the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which the peace panels aim to submit to Congress at the soonest possible time.
    “That is not a moving away or diluting political agreements that have already been signed, but are issues about what should now be put in the law,” Deles said in a media interview.
    She said the peace panels do not want to renegotiate issues that have already been agreed upon.
    “The problem is in the interpretation of how a political agreement is put into legal form. And I think that’s what’s very important in what happened yesterday,” Deles added.
    She said President Benigno Aquino III indicated the need to submit the draft BBL to Congress as early as possible.
    For her part, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said the President assured that he would push the BBL with conviction.
    Valte said the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) has come up with the resolution asking the peace panels to look at some of the issues that have been raised between the legal team and the Commission on the draft law.
