PIA Press Release

Misuari holds journey of peace in Pagadian

Pagadian City (4 August) -- In an effort to restore peace in Mindanao, Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) Chair Nur Misuari held a peace caravan in Pagadian City today. He arrived at exactly 3pm in Barangay Muricay, an identified Peace and Development Community (PDC).

Misuari said that there was an immediate call to speed up for the peace and solidarity of our people in Mindanao.

"As Chairman of the MNLF and in my capacity as the sole legitimate representative of the Bangsa Moro, it is my duty to help restore peace in Mindanao," Misuari said.

He also said that the MNLF is the chief defender, protector, guardian and the champion of peace, thus "it is not surprising to hear why MNLF leadership has always been advocating peace."

"The top item of my agenda is to relay the message of peace", Misuari added.

Asked to comment of the signing of the memorandum of Agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front over ancestral domain tomorrow, he said he doesn't like to comment on it. "That is their own look-out and we have nothing to do with that and it is not binding on us or the Bangsa Moro people as well," Misuari said.

Accordingly, Misuari's visit to Pagadian is the "3rd leg of his peace journey." The first was his visit to Davao City on May 24 and the second, in Central Mindanao and Lanao del Norte.

He intends to finish his tour of duty in Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Norte, and will proceed to Tawi-Tawi, Siasi, Sulu and Basilan. (PIA RO9) [top]
