The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has allegedly struck a deal with Malaysia over Sabah, and that’s why the rebel group is silent on the claim issue, a high-ranking Palace official said.

This is supposedly the reason why the MILF wants Malaysia to remain as the head of the international monitoring team overseeing the ceasefire agreement with the government, the official who requested anonymity said.

The source added that Malaysia has been pressuring the Philippine government into resuming the peace talks despite the ”unconstitutional” demands of the MILF for its future homeland in Mindanao, because of the alleged agreement on Sabah.

The situation in the Philippines is rather worrying.
