Philippine government seals peace with Milf guerrilla

By  |  0 Comments

PHILIPPINES. Muslim rebels in the Philippine Milf guerrilla and the Philippine government overcame decades of bitter hostility and took their first tentative step Monday toward ending one of Asia’s longest-running insurgencies with the signing of a preliminary peace pact that provides both hope and challenges, Contra Costra Times reported. The Philipine Milf guerrilla has been based on the southern island of Mindanao.

The framework agreement creates a roadmap for a final peace settlement. It grants minority Muslims in the southern Philippines broad autonomy in exchange for ending more than 40 years of violence that has killed tens of thousands of people and crippled development.
