President Rodrigo Duterte remains on the fence about resuming peace talks with the communist National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) even after meeting with left-leaning Cabinet officials.

In an interview in Malacañang Tuesday (February 28), Duterte said he will have to think about the fate of the peace negotiations with the NDFP first.

“I will think…I will think a thousand times, then consult the Cabinet including the left leaning members of the Cabinet,” he said.

But while Duterte is open to getting input from his Cabinet members about dealing with the NDFP, the time to discuss the resumption of peace talks is still far off.

“We’re all right and it’s best that we discuss it sometime, not now, about how to go — about this problem and how to navigate again the stormy waters of our conflict,” he said.

Duterte recently met with Leftist Cabinet Secretaries Judy Taguiwalo, Rafael Mariano and Liza Maza to discuss his decision to call off the peace talks with the NDFP.

The three Cabinet secretaries, who were nominated by the Left, had urged for the resumption of the negotiations.
