On President Duterte’s position to have peace talks with the CPP/NPA/NDF held in the Philippines

To me, it makes a lot of sense. I have actually been asking myself for the longest time why we need a third country facilitator and venue to talk peace with our fellow Filipinos. For one, it entails more expenses, not to mention inconvenience.

Those who are in self-exile may only need a safe conduct passage from the government to move freely and safely during the whole duration of the peace talks. I don’t think their self-proclaimed “belligerency status” will suffer or get affected if we do not involve a third, neutral party or country.

Therefore, I fully support President Duterte in his assertion that we hold the peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/National Democratic Front and other rebel groups right here in our country.
