Army supports resumption of peace talks with Reds

MANILA The Philippine Army (PA) has expressed its support to President Rodrigo R. Duterte's decision to resume the stalled peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF).

"The Army shall, by all means, abide and support the government stand and thrust on the renewed peace talks," Army spokesperson, Lt. Col. Louie Villanueva, said Thursday.

Villanueva said the Army would continue to perform its mandate and contribute to the "permanent and peaceful closure of all armed conflicts by adhering to the primacy of peace process."

He also assured that they would continue to perform their task and be on guard to prevent NPA rebels from exploiting the process, saying troops deployed for anti-insurgency operations would continue their mission. (PNA)
