MANILA -- Triggered by attacks in certain areas in Mindanao, the Philippine government will no longer sign the controversial Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD) with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
Press Secretary Jesus Dureza made the announcement Wednesday at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), saying the government will instead seek to renegotiate the agreement with the Moro rebel group.
