GPH President Aquino’s failure to comply with the agreement made by Special Representatives of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) on December 18, 2012 at the Royal Norwegian Embassy in The Hague is most regrettable. Both sides had agreed on a ceasefire from December 20, 2012 until January 15, 2013. This agreement, formalized in a Press Communique authenticated by Royal Norwegian Ambassador Ture Lundh, memorialized the meeting of the Special Representatives of both Parties in pursuance of the special track in the GPH-NDFP peace negotiations.
