Palace: Aquino 'fully aware' of Sabah shooting, wants peaceful solution |
News | GMA News Online:
"President Benigno Aquino III is "fully aware" of the reported firefight between Malaysian authorities and a group of armed Filipinos in Sabah, and instructed government officials to try to continue finding a "peaceful solution" to the problem, a Malacañang official said Friday.
This developed as an official of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said the shooting had stopped as of Friday noon.
In a radio interview, Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office head Ricky Carandang also said the concerned Cabinet members may talk to their Malaysian counterparts for a peaceful resolution.
"He (Aquino) is fully aware of what happened. [He wants to have] a peaceful solution to this," Carandang said in an interview on dzBB radio.
He, however, declined to give further details, saying they are still "verifying" details of the incident.
A separate report by dzBB's Benjie Liwanag Jr. said Aquino wants a peaceful solution to the incident within the day."
