Bangsamoro government Interim Chief Minister Al Haj Murad Ebrahim has assured that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) would continue to abide by the peace agreement.

Murad, who is also the chairman of the MILF, made the assurance during the second phase of the decommissioning of the MILF combatants Saturday, September 7, and was attended also by President Rodrigo Duterte.

“We assure you, and our beloved President Duterte, and all our partners in the peace process that we will continue to uphold our part of the bargain,” he said.

A total of 1,060 MILF fighters with their 920 firearms were decommissioned. They are part of the 12,000 or 30 percent of the 40,000 combatants the MILF would decommission until March 2020.

The first phase of the decommissioning of MILF combatants and weapons took place on June 16, 2015 where 145 fighters with their 75 weapons were decommissioned.
