Gov't to pursue 6 paths to peace

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (2 October) -- The government will pursue six paths to peace in its effort to achieve a comprehensive agreement with two major rebel groups through peaceful means.

According to the Malacanang press report, the six paths to peace are: 1) Pursuit of social and economic reforms; 2) Consensus-building and empowerment for peace; 3) Peaceful, negotiated settlemet with the different rebel groups; 4) Programs for reconciliation, reintegration into mainstream society and rehabilitation of former rebels; 5) Addressing concerns arising from continuing armed hostilities; and 6) Nurturing a climate conducive to peace.

Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Avelino I. Razon, Jr. disclosed in a lecture-forum that the government's “peace policy was an offshoot of a nationwide and multi-sectoral consultation, spearheaded by the National Unification Commission to determine the root causes of the armed conflict and to formulate policy measures to address them”.

Razon assured that the peace policy of the government is a product of consultation and dialogue with people from the northernmost to southernmost parts of the Philippine archipelago.

The Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process also said that the earnest effort to end the bloodshed by putting peace at the forefront is proof that the government is serious in ending the armed conflict as soon as possible.

The lecture-forum was a joint project of the Supreme Court, the Office of the Presiential Adviser on the Peace Process, and the Ateneo Law School, the Malacanang press report disclosed. (PIA6) [top]
