The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has lauded the effort of the Philippine government to bring to the attention of the United Nations (UN) in New York about the latest progress of the GPH-MILF peace negotiation.
Mohammad Ameen, head of the MILF Secretariat, told Luwaran that the MILF fully appreciates the effort of Secretary “Ging” Deles of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) in bringing to the attention of the UN the gains of the peace negotiation.
“These efforts redound to the common interests of the government and the MILF,” Ameen told Luwaran during an interview in Darapanan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao recently.

“We are not discriminating in our praise. As long as it is for the people’s common good, we extend it to where it is due,” Ameen added.

During her meeting with Special Adviser and Assistant Secretary-General of Civilian Capacities to United Nations Sarah Cliffe at the sidelines of the recent 57th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, Secretary Deles underscored the importance of the roadmap that has been put in place to move the peace process resolutely forward between the GPH and the MILF.
Assistant Secretary-Cliffe oversees the United Nations’ CAPMATCH. 

CAPMATCH is a “self-service online platform whose purpose is to better match the demand and supply of specialized civilian capacities for countries emerging from conflict. It is owned and monitored by the UN Civilian Capacities Team."

CAPMATCH focuses on the five areas most commonly identified as the critical capacity gaps for countries emerging from conflict or crisis: safety and security, justice, inclusive political processes, core government functionality and economic revitalization.

Secretary Deles, cited by the OPAPP website, also underscored that capacity building programs were needed to enhance the capabilities of stakeholders but also stressed that such programs should be “stakeholder owned and driven.”

For her part, Assistant Secretary-General Cliffe agreed that vital capacity building programs that would support the Bangsamoro in the Southern Philippines “need to be worked out” by internal stakeholders and that any possible assistance and cooperation would have to be “tailor-made for the Philippine context.”

The website also said that Assistant Secretary-General Cliffe likewise lauded the efforts of the Philippine Government in the peace process and commended areas of expertise and best practices from which other stakeholders in the international community can learn from.
