The completion and signing of the Annex on Normalization of the Framework (Comprehensive) Agreement on the Bangsamoro (FAB) was achieved last January 25 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and this momentous event prompted the Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom) to initiate initial planning steps in anticipation of the annex’s implementation.

This initiative is necessary since the bulk of the Armed Forces’ responsibility in the peace process with the MILF is prescribed within the said annex and this will require an in-depth planning in order to allow its unhampered implementation.

Lt. Gen. Rustico Guerrero, Westmincom chief, pledged full support to the normalization and the whole of the peace process, further stating that being a national priority, Westmincom will exhaust all legal means to support the national government in its undertakings in the peace process until peace and stability are achieved in the Bangsamoro areas.

Westmincom’s area of responsibility currently covers all areas of interest of the MILF and the proposed Bangsamoro Domain.
