Pimentel said although the peace talks would be a long process, “it doesn't matter because the end result would be a common solution to a common problem.”

“Everybody will have a say as to the answer to that problem,” Pimentel said.

She said all sectors will be heard once everybody is properly represented in the peace process.

“There will be no discordant voices anymore. Everybody must be heard,” she said.
