DAVAO CITY (July 8, 2016) — President Rodrigo Duterte today announced that he is ready to start talking peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Moro National Liberation Font (MNLF).

“Ready na kami sa aming group sa gobyerno to talk to the MI and MNLF (We in government are ready to talk to the MILF and the MNLF),” Duterte said during the Hariraya celebration held at SMX Convention Center Davao.

The President said he will travel to Jolo, Sulu to talk to MNLF founding chair Nur Misuari to pave the way for the peace process to proceed.

Duterte also said he will ask the military to allow Misuari to move around Mindanao freely to get a consensus on the followers of the MNLF.

Misuari has been in self-exile since the 2013 siege of Zamboanga City.

The peace talks will be held simultaneously with the MNLF and MILF group.

“Kung hindi talaga matuloy ang federalism then what you give to the MI must be given to the MN, so we can have peace in the land,” Duterte said.

“We are all a nation. We are all brothers and sisters by blood… Let me use the short string of bandage I have with you. Let me use it as a bridge (for peace),” he added.
