The NDFP – Mindanao strongly condemns the US-Duterte regime for issuing Presidential Proclamation No. 360, a decree that brands the CPP-NPA-NDF as “terrorists” and completely terminates the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations. This only reveals the regime’s utter contempt for attaining just and lasting peace and its propensity towards a reign of death, destruction and tyranny.
Tumpak ang inyong panawagan sa pagtitipon na ito na “Tibayan ang Hanay! Biguin ang Pasistang Atake ng Rehimeng US-Duterte. Palawakin ang paglaban sa imperyalismo sa buong daigdig!¨ Nakaharap ngayon ang sambayanang Pilipino sa isang terorista at pasistang kontrarebolusyon na nilunsad ni Duterte para sa imperyalismong US at mga kapwa niyang oligarko: malalaking komprador, asendero at burukrata kapitalista.
After pronouncing the CPP-NPA-NDFP as terrorist organizations, GRP president Rodrigo Duterte subsequently fulfils the US imperialist’s objective to ruin the GPH-NDFP peace negotiations.

We, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), hereby declare that we await receipt of the written notice of termination of the peace negotiations by the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) as a consequence of the reported signing of Proclamation No. 360 by GRP President Duterte declaring such termination.
Duterte violated the mutual agreement that talks would be discreet until there would be good news to announce at the end of the fifth or sixth round of formal talks. In the course of his rants, Duterte unwittingly exposed his scarce, shallow and defective knowledge of the peace process
