President Rodrigo Duterte’s invitation is not one of the reasons.
President Rodrigo Duterte asked Jose Maria Sison to come home, assuring the communist rebel leader he won't be jailed.
Both parties are looking forward to the next round of talks on May 27.
The Left calls for the Philippine government to suspend military and police operations in select areas for a week to release four remaining prisoners of war.
In the fourth round of peace negotiations, the Philippine government and the NDFP agreed to craft an interim joint ceasefire.
Despite the delay, the government and the communist rebels remain hopeful for the fourth round of peace talks.
President Rodrigo Duterte's last minute instructions delayed the opening of the fourth round of talks between the government and the National Democratic Front.
After receiving a call from the President, the Philippine government and the communist postpone the peace negotiations til tomorrow afternoon.
This means clashes can still happen between the two sides.
Following the government's move not to declare unilateral ceasefire, the National Democratic Front said they are willing to work on a bilateral ceasefire instead.
