MANILA, Philippines -- The government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front will have their next round of formal peace negotiations in Kuala Lumpur on April 24 to 26.
 
The upcoming talks would be crucial after the MILF political leadership issued a statement raising doubts on the signing of a final peace agreement within the term of President Benigno Aquino III.
 
"The prospect of signing a comprehensive agreement within the Aquino
administration is not bright," MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal said.
 
Iqbal, however, admitted that the presence of representatives from the Organization of Islamic Conference in this month's round of negotiations would be "an added value" that can move the talks forward.
 
Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, for his part, said the Aquino administration is "coming to the negotiating table in good faith."
 
"Despite these developments (statements from the MILF), we hope we can still sign a peace pact with them," Valte said.
