NDFP consultants declare 1st round of talks successful

National Democratic Front of the Philippines consultants declare their first round of peace negotiations with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines successful.

In a press conference at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport upon their arrival last September 3, the consultants said the agreements reached at the talks push forward their struggle for genuine independence and just and lasting peace.

“We are happy to be part of this historic event,” Benito Tiamzon, in behalf of his group, said.

“We enjoin the Filipino people to join us in fighting for change both within and outside the ambit of the peace negotiations,” Tiamzon added.
