Is the government prepared for the collapse of peace talks – Duterte asks

“Let this be a fair warning to our national leaders. The indicators of an eruption of violence in the Central Mindanao area are becoming very evident,” Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said warning that if the peace talks between the government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front hostilities in Mindanao will start.

“The people involved in the televised investigation of the Mamasapano incident may not really care, but we who live in Mindanao and who have experienced the horrors of the conflict are getting scared,” the mayor added.

Senate and the House of Representatives are both conducting probes on Mamasapano incident.

“Remember that if there is a breakdown in the peace negotiations, we in Mindanao will be the first ones who will suffer and it is sad that nobody in Manila seems to realize this.

“We have to prepare for the worst. Is government now prepared for that?” the mayor asked.
