Press statement of Sen. Jamby Madrigal

I have accepted the invitation from the National Democratic Front Panel for a dialogue on the suspended peace talks. I am doing this as a Senator and as a peace advocate who believes that a political and peaceful settlement is still the best way to address the so-called insurgency movement.

Peace and progress cannot be achieved through the barrel of a gun. I hope my visit will not be misinterpreted by the hawks in the Arroyo Administration. I have no political agenda. As a Filipino, I only want to do my share in preventing further unnecessary bloodshed.
