Philippines President Meets with Muslim Rebel Leader

Government negotiators say the two hour meeting in a Tokyo suburb was cordial and both sides agreed on need to fast-track peace negotiations
 For more than three decades, Muslim rebel groups in the southern Philippines have been fighting the government.  More than 120,000 people have died as a result and more than a million people have been displaced.  The MILF is the largest rebel group with more than 10,000 members.

Over the years, talks have broken down repeatedly between the government and the rebels.  The Aquino administration has signaled its intent to forge peace in the resource-rich region in an effort to attract more foreign investment to the country.
The next meeting between negotiators will be in two weeks.

 I do not claim to know what all this stuff is about. I am trying to learn ,slowly .
 I know Death is real and with these fights it is the Poor and Innocent that tend to suffer most.... Often generations of a family being wiped out.
