There is certainty that the declaration of Martial Law in the entire island of Mindanao wilm have an effect in the peace talks between the government and the communist group.

This was explained by Presidential on the Peace Process Sec. Jesus Dureza during his interview at Raffy Alunan’s show ‘Thinking Out Loud’ aired over DZRH News Television.

Dureza added that it cannot be avoided that the ongoing peace process will be affected since the MILF and other communist groups involved in the said talks are in Mindanao.

However, Dureza abolished the fear of the public that the peace talks will not push through because of Martial Law.

The Cabinet official made an assurance that peace talks will continue despite the implemention of Martial Law.

The MILF has nothing to worry since a mechanism has been set by both parties to support the peace talks amid such declaration.
