Leftists vows to continue attacks to compel Philippine gov't in serious talks


16:31, December 26, 2011

MANILA, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) has accused the Philippine government of not being interested in the peace process as it vowed to continue attacks on government troops to compel the Aquino administration to engage in "serious" talks, local media reported on Monday.

The CPP, the umbrella organization of the communist movement in the Philippines, said on Sunday that the peace negotiations with the government of the Philippines (GPH) could not be held unless the government addresses the prejudicial issues being raised by the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), the rebels' political wing, and makes amends.

The leftist rebels have been asking for the release of most of the 17 detained consultants and leaders.

"The Aquino regime has amply shown its lack of sincerity and seriousness in peace negotiations with the NDFP. We should dispel any illusion that the regime is interested in addressing the roots of the armed conflict and forging agreements with the NDFP on social, economic and political reforms," said the CPP, which will celebrate its 43rd founding anniversary on Monday.

"Clearly, it is hellbent on destroying the Party and the revolutionary movement," it added.

The CPP, however, said that they will continue to express their desire for peace negotiations "in order to prevent the enemy from claiming falsely that we are not interested in a just and lasting peace."

"Indeed, the only way to compel the enemy to engage in serious negotiations is to inflict major defeats on it and make it realize the futility of its attempt to destroy the revolutionary movement, especially the people's army," said the CPP.
