Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 27.07.2018

We welcome the successful conclusion of the legislative process regarding the Bangsamoro Organic Law and its signing by the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

We commend the efforts of the Philippine Government, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and other stakeholders in finalizing this landmark legislation which aims to create a new political entity known as the “Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao”

With the political will and vision of the relevant Parties, a critical juncture in the peace process has been passed. This is a historic accomplishment on the path of achieving a just and lasting peace, stability and prosperity in Bangsamoro.

Bangsamoro Organic Law also presents a valuable opportunity to tackle the root causes of violent extremism and terrorism and thus offers the promise of a better future for the Bangsamoro people.

Turkey will continue to support the peace process as well as the social and economic development of the region in the period ahead.
