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.


Quote
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

MANILA - Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chairman Jose Maria “Joma” Sison is “entitled to his own opinion,” President Rodrigo Duterte’s peace adviser said Friday after the exiled communist leader hit the chief executive for delaying the resumption of the peace talks.

Sison on Thursday said he was “exasperated” that the Philippine government “turned against written agreements” signed during backchannel talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) in the Netherlands from June 5 to 10.

The CPP founder had hoped that the peace talks would resume on June 28, with a stand-down deal to take effect a week prior.

“He is entitled to his own opinion and we respect it. Our purpose in seeking more time is precisely to strengthen and protect the gains achieved so far by both panels in the backchannel talks,” presidential peace adviser Jesus Dureza said.

Sison had accused Duterte and Dureza of wanting nothing but the “immediate capitulation of the revolutionary movement under the guise of an indefinite ceasefire and killing" of negotiations between the government and the NDFP.

Duterte slams Joma anew over peace talks
Christina Mendez (The Philippine Star) - July 8, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte has again expressed displeasure at Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chairman Jose Maria Sison, saying there is no sense working on a peace agreement since the rebel group is seeking his ouster.

Duterte taunted Sison a few days after administration officials said it is not closing the doors on the peace talks as long as the rebels abide with the President’s conditions.

“Sison said I will not last three years. So I am telling Sison if you do not want to talk peace with me since you said I will not last for three years, I am not interested talking with you,” Duterte said in a speech in Davao City on Friday.

Duterte is obviously not amused by Sison’s threat that the CPP will work for his ouster after the backchannel negotiations for the peace talks bogged down last month.
