Before meeting with the National Democratic Front chief negotiator Luis Jalandoni, a Palace official on Wednesday said the government would opt to first sign a peace agreement with the communist-led group.
At a press briefing, Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda made the reaction after the NDF announced its plans to send Jalandoni to Malacanang for a courtesy call.
"It will be better for the National Democratic Front to visit the Palace with a signed peace agreement," he said.
Last month, the Palace has completed the government panel that will deal with peace negotiations with the NDF.
The GRP-NDF peace talks did not prosper when the group was tagged by the United States as a terrorist organization, and accused the government of not exerting efforts to remove them from the list. (PNA)
