WALA NANG PEACE TALKS | Usaping pangkapayapaan sa pagitan ng gobyerno at mga komunista, kanselado na

3 weeks ago

Pormal nang kinansela ng Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process ang lahat ng magiging pulong ng gobyerno sa CPP-NPA-NDF.

Kasunod ito ng utos ni President Rodrigo Duterte na wala nang peace talks sa pagitan ng gobyerno at mga komunista.

“We are hereby announcing today the cancellation of all planned meetings with the CPP/NPA/NDF in line with President Duterte’s directive that there will be no more peace talks with them,” sabi ni OPAPP Secretary Jesus Dureza sa isang statement.

“Recent tragic and violent incidents all over the country committed by the communist rebels left the President with no other choice but to arrive at this decision. We take guidance from the President’s recent announcements and declarations.”

Pero pag-amin ni Dureza, nakakapanghinayang ang mga naging hakbang ng gobyerno para lang umusad ang negosasyon.

“President Duterte has taken unprecedented steps and has walked the so-called extra mile to bring peace. However, the Communist Party and its armed elements have not shown reciprocity.”

Sa kabila nito, nananatiling bukas ang OPAPP sa muling pagbuhay sa peace talks.

“There will be no peace negotiations anymore with the CPP/NPA/NDF until such time as the desired enabling environment conducive to a change in the government’s position becomes evident.”

Kasabay nito, nagpasalamat ang OPAPP sa Royal Norwegian Government sa naging suporta nito sa usaping pagkapayapaan at sa pagsisilbi bilang mediator.

Ang Department of National Defense naman, suportado ang desisyon ni Duterte na kanselahin na ang peace talks.

“The President has had enough of the Communist movement’s penchant for double-talk and continued acts of atrocities against the Filipino people. In keeping with the President’s guidance, the DND and AFP will continue to vigorously pursue operations against their armed components.”

Kasunod nito, nanawagan ang DND sa mga komunista na sumuko na.

“We strongly suggest to the NPA to lay down their arms, surrender, return to society, and be part of the real change espoused by the national leadership.”
