TALKS WITH THE REDS. Team from the 17th Congress of the Government Republic of the Philippines (GRP) in Oslo, Norway for the second round of peace talk with the CPP/NPA/NDF. Pangasinan 2nd District Congressman Leopoldo Bataoil is at extreme right.
However, the sad thing is, with all those positive developments in the political arena, hostilities between the government troopers and the forces of the CPP/NPA/NDF continue to persist in the different parts of the country. Now, these two opposite panels are sitting down in the 2nd round of talks here in Oslo, Norway, being facilitated through the courtesy of the Royal Norwegian Government, may I request all my fellow Filipinos to PRAY and SUPPORT the 2nd round of PEACE TALKS between the Philippine Government and the CPP-NPA-NDF for A Long and Lasting PEACE which will truly benefit everyone in our country as well as to move our nation fast forward to modernization, industrialization and ultimately the much-sought Prosperity which will truly, not just minimize, but will END POVERTY with socio-economic reforms that is being pursued by the Duterte Administration of our Government as well as the CPP/NPA/NDF!!! Hopefully, the two panels will agree to end almost half-a-century of armed conflict!!! Mabuhay ang Peace Talks!!! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!!! Mabuhay ang lahat ng mga Pilipino!!! Kaliwa, Kanan, Gitna, Muslim, Kristiyano, Meztizo o Katutubo, tayong lahat ay Pilipino!!! Mabuhay tayong lahat!!! GOD BLESS US ALL FILIPINOS AND THE WHOLE PHILIPPINES WITH WISDOM, PEACE, ORDER, DEVELOPMENT, PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY!!!"
