The Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo government must comply with existing agreements on the framework and modalities of the peace negotiations if it truly wants to resume the formal talks. It should not set preconditions that violate said agreements. It should not precondition the resumption of formal peace negotiations with a “ceasefire” that prejudices the sequence of the substantive agenda and that is calculated merely to stop the armed revolution.
