Moreover, the resulting peace agreements, as well as all previously signed peace agreements between the GPH and other armed parties must be fully and persistently implemented.

Our Peace Pledge: Primacy of the Peace and Human Rights Agenda In the 2013 Elections and Conflict Settlement
On the unfolding tragedy now threatening parts of Sabah, we urgently call upon President Benigno S. Aquino III of the Philippines, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak of Malaysia, the Sultanate of Sulu and its heirs led by Jamalil Kiram III, together with any and all individuals, organizations and networks who disavow violence and conflict, and who support dialogue as their primary mechanism for peace, to now unite and work towards bringing all the involved parties together in seeking a peaceful resolution to the issues at hand.
The Mindanao PeaceWeavers (MPW) salutes both the Government of the Philippines (GPH) led by no less than President Aquino and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in promptly accomplishing their task of selecting the members of the Transition Commission (TransCom) for the Bangsamoro.
We are movements and organizations calling on the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to add its voice and heed mounting international calls for an immediate stop to the continuing attacks on the Kachin people in Burma.
The Asia Pacific Solidarity Coalition (APSOC) and the signatories below urges all ASEAN governments to end its silence on the humanitarian challenges happening within its own backyard and compel the Burmese government to stand down and stop the violence it is perpetrating in Kachin state. Air strikes in the ethnic state were reported to have begun a few days ago.
The Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID) is a Philippines-based advocacy institution promoting human security, democratization and people-to-people solidarity.
