The Philippines government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front resumed their peace negotiations in Kuala Lumpur, reported on Manila newspaper.
In a statement it released on Tuesday, the MILF said the agenda for the explanatory meeting included power sharing, wealth sharing, territory and possibly a further discussion of the issue of the mechanism that eventually would replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
The meeting in Kuala Lumpur would be the 30th edition of the talks that state red in March 2001 after the Estrada administration declared an all-out war against the MILF in 2000. The all-out war displaced more than a million people and destroyed property worth millions.
“The government remains firm in its resolve to find a just and peaceful settlement to the conflict in Mindanao on the negotiation table and not in the battlefield,” presidential peace adviser Teresita Deles said.
