Catholic prelates hail signing of ceasefire deal between GPH and CPP-NDF-NPA in Oslo


MANILA, Philippines -- Catholic prelates have lauded the signing of the indefinite ceasefire deal between the Philippine government (GPH) and the Communist Party of the Philippines-National Democratic Front-New People's Army (CPP-NDF-NPA) in Oslo, Norway. 

Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo said he is hoping that the signing of the pact will settle the decades-old conflict and finally lead to peace in the country.

"I congratulate them for agreeing on a ceasefire. I hope this leads to trust that will bring about real peace," he said.

Lipa Bishop Ramon Arguelles believes that resting the arms is a step in achieving peace.
"Peace is always of highest value. Silence of arms is a good step to achieve peace," he added.

Marbel Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez said the signing of the deal between the government and the insurgents is a good decision.

"Good decision. No shooting, no death," he said.

On Friday, the Philippine government and leaders of the communist guerrillas signed the landmark deal to facilitate peace talks aimed at putting an end to the insurgency which has lasted close to five decades.
