Indigenous people in Mindanao are firmly behind a recently signed peace framework agreed by the island’s largest rebel group the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the government, according to a senior tribal leader. Datu Migketay Saway of the Talaandig tribe in Bukidnon province said the agreement signed on Monday signaled the start of trust between the Moro people and the administration in Manila. “We are supportive of this agreement which will usher in peace in our homeland and benefit all,” he said. Officials have indicated that the framework could lead to a permanent peace deal by the end of the year.
