MILF, MNLF join hands for peace initiatives in Cotabato

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) have braced up joint efforts for peace and solidarity that kick-off yesterday in Matalam, Cotabato Province. 

Datu Dima Ambel, State Chairman of the MNLF 15 –Man Council and Datu Demat Pedtamanan of the 108th Base Command of the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) - MILF led the launch of the peace and solidarity efforts held at Baranagy Manubuan.

A Joint Peace and Monitoring Task Force composed of 8-man equally representing the MNLF and MILF was also emplaced at Manubuan that was witnessed by and with commitment of support from the Provincial Government of Cotabato, GPH – MILF Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities, Philippine Army and Police, and the Malaysia-led International Monitoring Team (IMT).

Datu Dima and Datu Demat, who are close relatives, stressed that the launch marked the start of the implementation of the Resolution of the leaderships of the MILF and MNLF 15-Man Council forged during the Consultative Dialogue held at the 8th Avenue Convention Hall in Kabacan, Cotabato last week.

The Resolution sets the collaborative efforts with the MNLF and MILF at the helm in promoting unity, brotherhood and cooperation amongst the members of the two fronts, and peaceful amicable settlements of land-related disputes.
The two leaders of the MNLF and MILF said their efforts are direct offshoots of the agreements reached during the leadership dialogue in the Meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia last month. 

“As brothers, we can work together with greater resolve to realize our common aspiration for lasting peace and development for the Bangsamoro,” the two leaders of the MNLF and MILF emphasized.

The MILF and MILF leaderships conveyed their gratitude to Habib Guiabar, Head of the Local Monitoring Team for the Province of Cotabato, and Kelly Antao, Board Member of the Province of Cotabato, for their continuing mediation and assistance for the MILF – MNLF joint peace undertakings in the province, particularly in the towns of Kabacan and Matalam.
