‘Peace negotiations necessary to address roots of armed conflict’–Joma Sison

Chief Political Consultant Jose Maria Sison delivered the first remark for the NDFP in the opening ceremony of the fourth round of formal peace negotiations with the GRP, calling the peace talks as necessary in addressing the roots of the armed conflict.

As expected, Sison in his remarks laid down a most comprehensive blueprint in pushing forward the peace negotiations.

“I continue to be optimistic that within this year, it is possible for the GRP and NDFP Negotiating Panels to forge and sign the Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms (CASER) and the consequent joint ceasefire agreement,” Sison said. (Featured photo by Nwel Saturay)
