The Marcos government was forced to sign an agreement with the MNLF to stop the war. It was known as the Tripoli Agreement of 1976. it was aimed to provide political negotiated settlement to the Moro problem by granting Autonomy to the Muslims. The government insisted on a plebiscite to settle the territories. The MNLF didn’t recognize the results of the plebiscite which brought down negotiations. Marcos won over many MNLF ranks through various forms of attraction. He pursued the creation of two autonomous regions. The armed struggles continued quietly amid all these programs. A splittist group within the ranks of MNLF broke away and formed the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
