Willard Cheng of ABS-CBN News, via ABS-CBNNews.com, reports that "President Noynoy Aquino is open to providing benefits for Moro Islamic Liberation Front’s fighters who will lay down their arms and help ’integrate them in society.’"

 

The report quoted what the president said during at a forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines: "That was actually we had a short conversation with MILF Chairman Al Haj Murad before the actual signing. He did say that their fighters should be made to feel that this was a right decision on their part. So there should be benefits the day they would accrue from entering of this agreement. To which I responded by, 'Perhaps, you have a priority list. You know your people better, what they are capable of right now and we will go through your priority list and implement it as far as practicable in the schedule and the items that you want to do."
