We are instituting peace and stability in Muslim Mindanao not through violence (all-out-war) but through a negotiated political settlement to address: Historical injustices committed against the Bangsamoro Minoritization and landlessness Relative economic deprivation and underdevelopment (bring lag regions like the Bangsamoro at par with the other more developed regions in the country) Political and cultural marginalization The just aspirations of the Bangsamoro people for self- determination while preserving and strengthening the territorial integrity of the Republic of the Philippines . 3 These we aim to address as envisioned in the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) and as further provided in the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL)
