Press Statement of Senator Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III
on Zamboanga City standoff

May I appeal to my fellow Mindanaonon, Nur Misuari & his MNLF comrades, to please follow the path of peace in the assertion of their rights under the peace agreement they had entered into with the government years ago.

To revert to the use of violence would be unproductive and unnecessarily cause the death of so many innocent lives in Mindanao.

Please allow the government some leeway to alleviate your concerns peacefully and in a just & fair manner.

Then we can all work together for the welfare of our people, Muslims and Christians alike.
