Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chair Jose Maria Sison on Friday said the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) was “ever ready” to resume peace talks with the Philippine government.
Sison issued this statement after President Rodrigo Duterte said the Philippines remained committed to achieving peace following his meeting with Idun Tvedt, Norwegian special envoy for the peace process between the Philippine government and the NDFP.
“The NDFP is ever ready to negotiate with the GRP as soon as the GRP [or GPH, meaning government of the Philippines] ceases to terminate the peace negotiations and allows its negotiating panel to negotiate with its NDFP counterpart,’ Sison said in a statement sent to INQUIRER.net.
