Minister Atsushi Ueno of Japanese Embassy in Manila accompanied by IMT Member Hiroyuki Kawamoto paid visit to MILF Leadership, Monday (March 6) at Moro Front’s Administrative Camp in Darapanan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao. 

Chairman Alhaj Murad Ebrahim and members of the MILF Central Committee gladly welcomed the two visitors.

The purpose of the visit was to reiterate Japan’s commitment in the continuing support for the peace process through their IMT contingents’ stay for renewal and to carry through with socio-economic programs that they have engaged in the Bangsamoro.

Their participation in the IMT contingent coupled with providing socio-economic programs for the Bangsamoro manifests their strong and continuing support in all aspect of the Mindanao peace process. 

The Japanese dignitary was also enthusiastic to know the development and status of the peace process, hence Chairman Ebrahim gave him updates extensively. 

“There may be some opportunities seen in the on-going peace process, but we are also facing some challenges. Upon all those mentioned concerns and issues, the MILF remains hopeful that real peace with justice will be achieved”, Chairman Ebrahim said. 

Minister Ueno was too appreciative for the cordial reception and very informative meeting, while the MILF leadership was pleased to know that all along, the Japanese government is keenly interested on the current state of the peace process.
