Top government security officials met Wednesday to discuss plans and strategies to effectively address the terrorism and insurgency problems in the country in a race to end internal security problem before President Duterte steps down from office in 2022.

Gen. Gilbert Gapay, chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), said the purpose of the meeting is to review and update the government’s plan to address internal security, particularly threats from the local terror groups headed by the Abu Sayyaf Group and other extremist groups with links to international terrorism and from the local communist groups.

“We are here to review, evaluate to strengthen the partnership, and improve the plan which we have so that we would beat the deadline set by our President which is to end all these local armed conflict posed by the CPP-NPA (Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army) and the local terrorist groups before his term ends in 2022,” said Gapay.
