War over between military, MILF — Galvez

ARMED Forces Chief Carlito Galvez Jr. officially declared the end of the war between the Philippine military and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Galvez made the announcement in a visit on Saturday at the MILF’s Camp Darapanan in Sultan Kudarat where he met with MILF chairman Al Hajj Murad Ebrahim. The military chief was also accompanied by high-ranking military officials from the general headquarters and the Western Mindanao Command (WestMinCom).

“I can now declare that the war between the Armed Forces and the MILF is finally over,” Galvez said in a statement on late Saturday.

“To my commanders, let us embrace our brothers and sisters and give them respect and lasting peace that the Moro people deserve,” he said.


The MILF leadership also bestowed on Galvez the “Soldier of Peace Award,” a first to be given to a military officer by the MILF. DEMPSEY REYES
