Danilo Suarez urges Duterte to fasttrack peace talks with communists

Jul 12, 2018 @ 13:23

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez, in his Manila Standard column, urged President Rodrigo Duterte to quicken the pace of negotiations with communist rebels.

The Quezon politiko made the statement after Duterte cancelled the resumption of peace talks between the government and the National Democratic Front.

Suarez said Duterte must “prioritize the welfare and protection of the majority.”

“While I agree to where the government stands in the peace process, I would encourage the President to fast-track the negotiations and be firm with his decisions. Let us not prolong the peace process,” he said.

“This July is an opportunity to break what seems like an impasse. Let us take advantage of this chance to put an end to the 50-year communist insurgency,” Suarez added.
