Duterte on Misuari offer of fighters for Marawi: Wag muna ngayon

Speaking to Army troopers in Tacurong City, President Rodrigo Duterte said said it would not be good to pit Moros against fellow Moros.

"Nur and I talked once… He offered to send 2,000 of his men. I said ‘Wait, not now. Not now Nur,’” Duterte said.

“It’s not good to be fighting if they do not realize what it’s all about. A Moro against the Moro. Let us make them understand first what this is all about,” he added.

2,000 combatants offered by Moro National Liberation Front founder Nur Misuari will not join the campaign against Maute terrorists in Marawi City.

Duterte previously said he was ready to recruit MNLF members and other former rebels to the military if the clashes in Marawi City drag on.

"I am announcing to all forces of the MI, MN, if this conflict will take long and if you want to join, cast your lot with the Republic… I will take you in as soldiers, same privileges, and I will build houses for you in some areas," Duterte said.
