New army chief supports
peace, but issues warning

MANILA – Newly-installed Army chief Maj. Gen. Emmanuel Bautista yesterday affirmed his full support to the peace process, but warned about applying a "legitimate force" against those who insist on using arms to threaten the safety of the people.

Bautista, son of the late Brig. Gen. Teodolfo Bautista, who was murdered while negotiating with a group of armed secessionist rebels in Mindanao in 1977, admitted that the road to peace is long and difficult. In the face of adversities and challenges, he, however, said "We should remain focused on our objective of winning the peace."

The Philippine Army remains fully supportive of the peace process by continuing to reach out to their brothers in the mountains and ask them to choose the peaceful path, and those who do so merit their unwavering support, Bautista said in an interview, after he assumed command of a 70,000-strong Army.moremoremore
