The Duterte government is now moving heaven and earth to push for localized peace talks. This is not the first time. During Corazon Aquino regime, regional talks were also held parallel to the national talks. The talks eventually collapsed after the Mendiola massacre.

It was from this experience that lessons were drawn. All succeeding peace talks would then be held in a foreign neutral venue.
