NUR MISUARI, the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding chairman, has signaled that he is willing to help in talks to resolve the standoff in Sabah between an armed group of Filipino intruders and the Malaysian forces.
“It is my message to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak that I am ready to send my grand-nephew who is his COUSIN to open up talks.”......“I hope they will not harm them. They are our brothers. If one drop of their blood is spilled, we might be forced to come to their aid,” Misuari said.
When he was in Jolo, Sulu, over the week, Misuari said that what he heard was that the group led by Agbimuddin Kiram, the younger brother of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, had crossed the sea to Sabah because they were allegedly promised to be settled in Sabah by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Misuari appealed to Najib to exercise prudence in dealing with the people of the sultan.
“This should be handled by cooler heads,” he said, adding it would also be good to await the coming election in April in Malaysia to see who will be the new PRIME MINISTER. (FMT)
