NANINIWALA ANG Pa-lasyo na misguided o naliligaw si dating Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) chairman Nur Misuari.
Ayon kay Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda, malinaw namang kapayapaan ang hangad ng administrasyon sa Mindanao.
Sinabi ni Lacierda na nais nilang isaalang-alang ni Misuari ang interes ng Muslim Mindanao at ng buong bansa at isantabi ang personal na interest.
Sa kasalukuyan, biniberipika pa ng intelligence community ang umano’y independence declaration ni Misuari.
Samantala, hindi naman masabi ni Lacierda kung nananatili pang banta sa seguridad ang MNLF founding chairman.
“With respect to the alleged declaration, our intelligence agencies are verifying that. With respect to ‘mischief’, we’re very committed to the peace process. If that is mischief in his view, he’s certainly misguided. We are for peace in Muslim Mindanao. That’s the thrust of this administration: to ensure that there will be peace in Mindanao so that the peace dividends can flow to the people in Mindanao,” ayon kay Lacierda. “Certainly, the people of Mindanao would know where to look at, what to favor. And that’s the same thing that we ask from Nur Misuari: not to look at his own personal interest. Look to the national interest or look to the interest of the people of Muslim Mindanao.”
