The Secretary General brings together the leaders of MNLF and MILF for an agreement

Date: 20/05/2010 

The Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu carried out contacts with the leadership of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to enhance coordination between the two fronts and unite their ranks for the peace and development of the Bangsamoro people.

He succeeded in bringing them together for a meeting which was held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan on the sidelines of the 37th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers on 18 May 2010 with the participation of senior officials of the OIC in charge of Muslim Minorities issues.

The Chairmen of the two fronts, Prof. Nur Misuari, Chairman of MNLF, and Haj Murad Ibrahim, Chairman of MILF, have agreed to enhance the cooperation and coordination among them, and to create a mechanism for that purpose with the technical help from the OIC General Secretariat. A second meeting between them will be held in the near future to lat down the details of that mechanism.

The Secretary General promised to render any needed assistance for the holding of this meeting.
