Separatist fighters in Philippines enter politics after peace deal – BBC News

A recent peace deal between separatist fighters and the Philippine government has led to the establishment of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao.

After decades of conflict, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front is now transitioning to politics, helping to establish a fledgling regional parliament in return for the decommissioning of firearms.

But with other factions still at war with state forces, can the peace hold? BBC Philippines correspondent Howard Johnson visited the region.

  10. “The Philippine government hopes a peace deal can end violence…” You’re kidding right? Yeah, they can hope as they have for many decades. Corruption begins at the top.

  11. Its good we are having peace in Mindanao. The former administration was wrong for trying to ethnically cleanse Mindanao. Once we can have peace in Mindanao, we can move on to help the region and the country get out of poverty. I’m happy that the government is going in the right step.

  12. To those separatist Philippines does not belong to you! You came there because your own damn country does not provide the necessities that you need to survive why on earth are you causing a lot of harm to the Filipino government or country you have no right to be in politics!!

  13. the Philippines were named after Prince Philip because a lot of lizards live there

  14. The fact that this news is made by BBC is that they can twist the words just like what every western news do.
