Esteemed Friends of KAPAYAPAAN,

Thank you very much for your invitation to the launching of KAPAYAPAAN on July 15, 2014.

We in the NDFP Negotiating Panel warmly congratulate you for organizing KAPAYAPAAN, Campaign for A Just and Lasting Peace!

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) conveys its full and firm support to your determination to build a nationwide and vibrant peace constituency to push for the resumption of the peace talks. We are in accord with your calls: Resume Peace Talks! Honor All Agreements! Address the Roots of the Armed Conflict!

The NDFP is willing to hold informal talks or consultations with the Government of the Philippines (GPH) on the basis of all bilateral peace agreements to seek a just and lasting peace by addressing the roots of the armed conflict. Such informal talks or consultations are in accordance with the Agreement on the Ground Rules of the Formal Meetings between the GRP and the NDFP Panels signed on February 26, 1995.

The NDFP is willing to hold the informal talks or consultations without preconditions. These can take place in the next month in Oslo, Norway or in The Netherlands. Such informal talks or consultations should aim for the resumption of formal talks in the succeeding month or months.

We share the call for resuming as soon as possible the negotiations on social and economic reforms, the second substantive agenda stipulated in The Hague Joint Declaration. These indeed constitute the meat of the roots of the armed conflict, as you have correctly stressed.

Our Reciprocal Working Committee on Social and Economic Reforms is ready for such negotiations. It is composed of Ms. Julieta de Lima, Member of the NDFP Negotiating Panel, as Chairperson, Messrs. Rafael Baylosis, Randall Echanis, and Alan Jazmines as Members. As you all know, Alan Jazmines is in detention since February 14, 2011, in violation of the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG).

Again, our warm congratulations for organizing KAPAYAPAAN. We extend our best wishes for the success of KAPAYAPAAN. On behalf of our Negotiating Panel, NDFP Political Consultant Vicente Ladlad will attend and participate in your launching of KAPAYAPAAN!

Sincerely yours, on behalf of the NDFP Negotiating Panel:.

Chairperson, NDFP Negotiating Panel
