Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!
(Peace be upon you and God’s mercy and blessings).

It was 25 years ago when the Government of the Philippines and the Moro National Liberation Front made history with the signing of the Final Peace Agreement. This development ushered in an era of greater peace, sustainable development and economic stability not only in the Southern Philippines, but for the Philippines as a whole.

As the nation celebrates the silver anniversary of the 1996 Peace Agreement this year, the Office Of The Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process re-affirms the Duterte Administration’s pledge to honor the remaining commitments of the government under the peace pact. We laud the men and women of the MNLF for standing behind what their leaders have signed for and for their unwavering support to the peace process.

We commend MNLF’s Founding Chair Professor Nur Misuari for his invaluable contribution in sustaining the gains of the GRP-MNLF peace process by paving the way for members of extremist groups in sulu to return to the folds of the law.

We likewise laud MNLF Chair Muslimin Sema and his group for their active involvement in the Bangsamoro Transition Authority, particularly for helping to establish the foundations for accountable, inclusive and people-centered governance in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

As we celebrate another milestone in the GPH-MNLF peace process, in which the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has played integral role, we call on our MNLF brothers and sisters to unite and continue to work with us so that we can build a better, brighter and more peaceful future for the Moro People. By choosing the path of peace we have proven ourselves worthy of our vision of a peaceful Hula, Bangsa and Agama.

Mabuhay po ang ating mga kapatid na MNLF!
