It was Signed today in Kuala Lumpur, between the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the final agreement for the independence of the Bangsamoro in Mindanao in the southern Philippines .


It is a historic turning point in the long conflict that has affected the country for over 30 years. The Republic of the Philippines, the largest Catholic country in Asia, has shown the ability to include the differences, involving civil society in interfaith dialogue with the Muslim minority in the region of Mindanao to get to the recognition of the autonomy.

This opens a new season of commitment to build a democratic peace and inclusive of all in a country so heterogeneous as the Republic of the Philippines, plagued by decades of internal conflict and more than once - but lately in a way so dramatic - from natural disasters, along with the conflicts affecting the weaker sections of the population.


The Community of Sant'Egidio, which has participated in the negotiations with his nominee Alberto Quattrucci, as a member of the International Contact Group, together with the Muhammadiyah , the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue and Conciliation Resources, expressed his satisfaction at the completion of the process of negotiation between the parties, which took place today in Kuala Lumpur, which opens a new phase in the history of the Philippines.
