“Peace talks should be clear and specific.
CPP/NPA/NDF should clear of their demand, so stand for it not the other side, while their leadership is negotiating and the NPA is still doing violence against people and properties/equipment. I am in favor of the localize peace talks because it creates faster solution to the problem. Issues brought about by the NPA can be discussed with the LGUs and let them lay down their arms otherwise, they will be declared as enemy of the estate or terrorist.”
