It is now 64 years and 6 months since the Philippines signed the resolution, but it has yet to show its sincerity and commitment. So, the UN is now pressuring the Philippine Government in this case, said Mohd Sakiral.
In this interview of the Sultanate of Sulu Darul Islam (SSDI) Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mofa) executive minister Hb. Mohd Sakiral Daie on the latest development regarding the Sultanate’s efforts to have its independence recognised by the Philippines regimes.

As of date the UN contingents are still watching closely the reaction and performance of the Philippines government, on whether they are sincere in their commitment to human rights, peace and commitments to uphold the UN de-colonisation commission statute on the ‘granting of Independence to colonial peoples’, of which Manilla is a signatory.
In fact, the Philippines was the first signatory to granting of independence to East Timor.
Now it is being under virtual ultimatum to pave the way for the granting of Independence to Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam, the remaining colonial nation yet to receive UN General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV) of December 14, 1960 that called for the granting of Independence to colonial countries and peoples.
It is now 64 years and 6 months since the Philippines signed the resolution, but it has yet to show its sincerity and commitment. So, the UN is now pressuring the Philippine Government in this case, said Mohd Sakiral.
The “Istana” of the SSDI Sultan has already been built under UN funding and discretion and is ready for occupancy, but the Manila’s colonial government is still dilly-dallying on allowing the UN safe entry for the restoration of SSDI Independence since 2013.

MOFA HB. MOHD SAKIRAL DAIE: SSDI Independence is waiting only for the UN open declaration which is forthcoming, very soon Insya-Allah (God Willing).

WORLDFUTURETV.COM: What is the next step to be taken by the sultanate?

MOFA HB. MOHD SAKIRAL DAIE: SSDI is on the wait and see as to when the UN reps are arriving for the “BIG DAY”. According to initial unconfirmed news, the preliminary Meeting/Forum is going to be held on 9 March and the final turnover could be around the 22-31 March 2015,..

WORLDFUTURETV.COM: Is the international community assisting SSDI or supporting the Philippines regime?

MOFA HB. MOHD SAKIRAL DAIE: The International community is openly in favour of SSDI but is keeping it in low key due to the stubbornness of local government officials and their hirelings who cannot readily let go of their political clouts. If they do so, this will signal their last hold on power.

The Phil Govt is even not contesting SSDI rights to self-detrmination in the open, afraid of being chided by the UN for its previous commitments to the UN decolonisation commission where it had played major roles in the Independence of East Timor and others…

NOTE: The SSDI is not to be confused with the Sulu Kingdom fighters who fought the Malaysian authorities in Sabah recently.
