Maj Carlos Sol Jr, Head of the Secretariat of the GPH CCCH, said "the effectiveness of the ceasefire mechanisms and strong cooperation and partnership between the government and MILF forces attributed the zero armed encounter for 2012."

"The signing of the Framework Agreement had significantly improved and sustained the adherence and support to the ceasefire particularly among the ground commanders of
the government and MILF and the local government units," Maj Sol said.

Stable situation on the ground so that the implementation of the Framework Agreement will be provided the necessary conducive environment for its greater success.
