Duterte is making himself look foolish and whimsical by claiming “I am not ready” to justify his cancellation of the scheduled talks. In fact, Duterte is merely concealing his disinterest in implementing the stand-down agreement and seriously pursuing formal peace negotiations.
It is both disappointing and frustrating that the Duterte regime has unilaterally cancelled the scheduled start of the stand-down ceasefire on June 21 and the resumption of formal talks in the peace negotiations in Oslo a week later on June 28.
The CPP strongly condemns the Duterte regime and the PNP for the violent dispersal of striking workers of Nutriasia earlier today.
