The United Nations, in a statement by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, recognized it as “a landmark achievement on the road to lasting peace in the southern Philippines.”

The European Union said, “The passage of the Bangsamoro Organic Law represents an opportunity for the Filipino people to embrace peace and stability after decades of strife,” in a statement by EU Spokesperson Maja Kocijancic.

The Philippines’ ally Japan, meanwhile, was the first to express its support “for the development of Mindanao in a wide range of fields, in accordance with progress in the peace process.” This, according to Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kano, is Japan’s commitment under the Japan-Philippines Joint Statement on Bilateral Cooperation for the next five years announced in October 2017,

The Bangsamoro Organic law is considered a key step to ending a decade-long armed conflict in the southern Philippines that had claimed thousands of lives since it began in the 1970s.

For his part, President Duterte appealed to the Moro community to give BOL a chance in leading the path towards peace.

“Hindi pa kami nag-usap sa Tausug group, kay Nur, o kahit kanino ang kailangan kausapin ko. Iyong BBL tapos na. Bigyan lang natin ng panahon. Huwag tayong mag-giyera. Kasi kung mag-giyera — wala naman problema mamatay tayo. Mamatay man tayo lahat. Ang problema, ang mga mahirapan ang mga bata, matanda, pati mga babae. Mag-iwan lang tayo ng maraming orphans. Maglaki ng walang tatay, hirap ang nanay. Papaano… Huwag natin pasukan ‘yan. Hindi panahon natin ‘yan. Hindi ‘yung away na pwede tayong makipagsapalaran na ubusan. Mag-usap na lang. Iyong Abu Sayyaf, mag-usap na lang tayo,” the President said during his visit to fire-affected residents in Brgy. Bus-Bus in Jolo, Sulu on Friday (July 27).

A ceremonial signing of the BOL  is being prepared between President Duterte and the leaders of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF).
