MILF-GRP Peace Talks in peril

June 25 is the deadline imposed by the MILF and the GRP in its effort to arrive at a peace agreement. MILF head Mohaqar Iqbal already said that the MILF side will not push for a separate state, something which stalled talks between the MILF and the GRP before. The proposed Ancestral Domain agreement tries to place certain areas in Mindanao under MILF control. Anti-ADD proponents went to the Supreme Court to appeal against the signing of the ADD. Intense public pressure forced the Philippine government to cut the talks with the MILF.

 

Malaysia, according to several sources, was able to convince the MILF Central Committee to abandon secessionist or independence calls. This was the reason why some of their commanders, led by Ameril Umbra Kato, broke away from the BIAF and formed his own Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF). Kato

is not in favor of a modified version of the ARMM model.
