NDFP ever ready to push peace talks forward, chief negotiator says


The National Democratic Front of the Philippines Negotiating Panel chairperson Fidel Agcaoili said their party came to the third round of formal talks ever ready to push the negotiations forward and even accelerate the process of forging mutually acceptable comprehensive agreements on the most important topics of Socio-economic Reforms (SER) and Political and Constitutional Reforms (PCR).

But Agcaoili said they are also mindful of the fact that certain serious obstacles remain to be hurdled if mutual trust and confidence are to be maintained so that the negotiations can move forward.

Watch and listen to Agcaoili’s remarks at the opening of their ongoing round of talks with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines.
