The second batch of the Bangsamoro peacekeepers has started its training in a military camp in Maguindanao province, the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) said.

The Joint Peace and Security Team (JPST), composed of 86 representatives from the Philippine National Police (PNP), 75 from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), and 152 from the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces-Moro Islamic Liberation Front (BIAF-MILF), kicked off Monday, October 21, and ends on November 22 at Camp Gen SK Pendatun.

The training for the first batch of JPST members was held in the same camp in December last year.

Under the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) signed between the government and the MILF in 2014, JPSTs will be tasked to support the maintenance of peace and order and stability in areas that will undergo the decommissioning process.

The decommissioning process is under the Normalization Track of the CAB, which aims at to help MILF combatants make the transition to peaceful civilian life, while their communities will be transformed into peaceful, progressive and resilient communities.
