Philippine President in Cotabato, Mindanao

President Gloria Macapagal–Arroyo is slated to briefly visit the Cotabato area on Saturday, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) here said.

The PIA–Cotabato Information Center said the President would be ferried by a Presidential helicopter from Davao City via the Awang Airport in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Shariff Kabunsuan, around noon.

While here, the President will momentarily preside over a joint Regional Peace and Order Council meeting inside the Army’s Camp Siongco near the airport.

The Chief Executive will also be handing over cash incentives to families of soldiers killed in action and wounded in the current military operations against lawless Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) groups.

After her Cotabato visit, the PIA said the President would go back to the Davao area for a string of sorties.
