Incoming Security adviser Carlos dismisses peace talks with CPP

Incoming National Security Adviser Clarita Carlos on Friday rejected the possibility of having peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines  in the next administration.

“Tama na yang peace talks na yan, susmaryosep. I'm sure bata ka pa ginagawa na natin yan. We're done with peace talks. We have agreement on certain things, let us proceed with that,” she said in an interview on ANC.

(Enough with the peace talks, my God! I’m sure since you were little it was already being done.)

However, Carlos said communist rebels would not be excluded and the government would still invite them to participate in the change.

“I-include mo sila sa pag-implement nito on the ground dahil hindi naman puwede na sila na lang reklamo nang reklamo dyan, tumatakbo sa kalye,” she said.

(Let’s include them in implementing the change on the ground because they cannot just whine and whine in the streets.)

Carlos also hit the leaders of the communist rebel group saying they are already in another geography and they don't have first-hand knowledge of the situation of the country.

“Well, I don't know what peace negotiations still need to be done,” she said.

“And by the way, let's not talk to the people who are not here. Nasa ibang geography na kayo, huwag na kayong mangialam dito sa amin. Kasi kami nangingialam and we know what's going on here,” she added.

(You are already in a different geography, don’t meddle with us here. We are meddling and we know what’s going on here.) —LBG, GMA News
