MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday said he is eyeing to declare communist rebels as terrorists.

Duterte reiterated that he is “not anymore inclined” to continue the peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People’s Army.

"I'll be issuing a proclamation. I will remove them from the category of a legal entity or at least a semi-movement which would merit our attention, placing them pareho sa (like) Amerika, terrorist," Duterte said Saturday.

The CPP and NPA are on the US list of foreign terrorist organizations since Aug. 9, 2002. The Arroyo administration requested for the rebel group's inclusion on the list.

The United States last February said it is keeping the CPP and NPA on its list.

Duterte said he would also file criminal raps against the rebel groups including the alliance of left-wing organizations, the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan.

AFP unfazed by 'Joma' warning to kill one soldier a day
By Priam Nepomuceno  February 5, 2018, 12:42 pm

MANILA -- Despite warnings coming from Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria "Joma" Sison, the military is more than willing to carry out its mandate of protecting the country against all forms of threat.

This was emphasized by Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) spokesperson Col. Edgard Arevalo when sought for a comment regarding Sison's claim that the New People's Army (NPA) can kill at least one soldier a day to force the government to revive the peace talks.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines will continue to do its mandate of serving and protecting the people from such terrorists like the NPA... the CPP founder's claim only shows the true colors of the communist movement.  such threats will not diminish the AFP's resolve in preserving the peace and aiding development in the countryside

Quote
To live in constant danger is part of the sworn duty of every serviceman. With or without threat to the lives of our soldiers, our troops will be there for our people in the communities where they are most needed
