Statement of Secretary Teresita Quintos Deles On the Postponement of the 5th GPH-MNLF-OIC Tripartite Review Meeting

Posted on Friday, Sep 13th, 2013

The Philippine Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs received today from the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia a Note Verbale concerning the postponement of the 5thSession of the GPH-OIC-MNLF Tripartite Implementation Review Meeting scheduled on 16 September 2013. The formal communication conveyed a copy of the Note Verbal dated 12 September 2013, addressed to the OIC Secretary General from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, which serves as the Chair of the OIC Peace Committee for Southern Philippines (PCSP).

The said Note Verbale to the OIC Secretary General relayed the receipt of Indonesia of a letter from the Chair of the MNLF Secretariat requesting for the postponement of the Tripartite Meeting to a later date, preferably in the 1st week of October 2013. It stated that the request was made by MNLF Chair Nur Misuari due to the “situation in Zamboanga City.”

The Department of Foreign Affairs has accordingly conveyed to the Indonesian Embassy that the Government will respect the decision of the OIC-PCSP Chair.

We consider it unfortunate that this opportunity for a face-to-face meeting that had been set precisely to discuss the status of the Tripartite Implementation review and the future of this peace process is yet again delayed.

We conveyed to the Chair of the OIC – PCSP our concern that this meeting not be indefinitely postponed. Indonesia’s Note Verbale to the OIC Secretary General stated that the new schedule and venue of the Tripartite meeting will be communicated following consultations with both parties.

We remain committed to our continuing engagement with the MNLF for the full implementation of the 1996 Final Peace Agreement, in pursuit of just and lasting peace in Mindanao.
