MANILA, July 12 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine government may tap Indonesia to be the third party facilitator in the peace process between the government and the secessionist Moro Islamic Liberation Front, President Benigno Aquino III said Monday.
"It might be them, it might be Indonesia," Aquino said when asked if his administration will maintain Malaysia as the third party facilitator with the MILF.
"I can't commit the Malaysian government to continue (to) help us," he added.
Manila tapped Malaysia as the mediator in the peace process between the government and the MILF in the early part of the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
Kuala Lumpur is also leading the International Monitoring Team that is overseeing the ceasefire between the government troops and the Muslim rebels.
Aquino said his administration will still talk with the foreign governments on their possible assistance to the peace negotiation with the rebels.
Aquino is yet to announce the members of the peace panels both for the MILF and the leftist National Democratic Front. Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Deles has submitted the initial list of names for the members of the peace panel.
