Instead of bringing together Muslim leaders, this agreement further fragmented the MNLF because some of the group`s political groups preferred independence to autonomy. Thus, a group of officers led by Hashim Salamat broke away and founded the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to continue its armed struggle for an independent nation of Bangsamoro (Moro Nation) in Mindanao. It also reaffirms the commitment of both parties to the following agreements/documents: – The Declaration of Continuity of Negotiations signed in June 2010, which included the documents of the Memorandum of Understanding on the Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD). The CAB is a 12-page text document that constitutes the final peace agreement between the GPH and the MILF. “The seal of the comprehensive agreement is not only important for the Bangsamoro, the people of Mindanao and all other Filipino citizens, all of whom must win as a country that continues its unfinished mission of nation-building. ” – Prof Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, president of the GPH peace body The government wants to set up the region by 2016. The agreement calls for Muslim self-management in parts of the southern Philippines in exchange for a deactivation of rebel forces by the MILF. The MILF forces would hand over their firearms to third parties chosen by the MILF and the Philippine government. A regional police force would be established and the Philippine army would reduce the presence of troops and help dismantle private armies in the area.  In the agreement, the government committed to modifying a 37-year experiment in autonomy whose current version, the Muslim Autonomous Region of Mindanao (ARMM), has not lived up to the Moro people`s aspiration for freedom through a highly centralized government.  The Comprehensive Agreement on Bangsamoro (CAB) is a final peace agreement signed on March 27, 2014 at the Malacañang Palace in Manila between the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
 As part of the deal, Islamic separatists would hand over their firearms to third parties chosen by the rebels and the Philippine government. The MILF has agreed to decommission its armed wing, the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF). In exchange, the government would establish an autonomous Bangsamoro. Power-sharing has been a focal point in the overhaul of autonomy. On October 15, 2012, the Philippine government signed a highly mesmerized document, presented as a framework agreement on the Bangsamoro, which culminated in the Aquino government`s efforts to end the stalling of the peace process. . . .
