AFP engages Sulu citizens in solving Abu Sayyaf problem



JOLO, Sulu – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) will engage the people in solving the Abu Sayyaf problem here.

In his message, AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Gregorio Pio P. Catapang Jr. said that he will direct the military commanders to visit local officials and identify community problems with them.

"We will help identify development projects and other social interventions that will address directly the problems," he said.

Sulu Vice Governor Sakur Tan said that he will support the move to organize a peace and economic summit that will be attended by different stakeholders including the civil-society organizations.

"We will do our part by working closely with different organizations. We also believe that we can solve these problems by helping each other," said Tan.

Release all hostages

Asked by a school teacher about the possibility of a ceasefire with the ASG, Catapang said: "That is possible but they need to release all hostages first. Sayang ang buhay ng mga batang iyan. Pagtulungan nating sila ay magbago,"said Catapang.

Catapang visited Sulu Provincial Capitol at 10:00am to hear the issues directly from the people who attended the General Assembly organized by Gov. Sakur Tan II.

The younger Tan was represented by his father, Vice Gov Sakur Tan I.

The consultative meeting was attended by 15 Sulu Mayors including Jolo town Mayor Hussin Amin.
