MANILA - The conflict in Sabah has President Aquino worried over the Philippines' relations with Malaysia.

He says the standoff could affect ties with our ASEAN neighbor, which has helped broker the peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Aquino blames the group of Raja Muda Kiram for putting in danger Filipinos working or living peacefully in Sabah.

"Ako'y umaapela sa inyo. Dapat ho maliwanag na maliwanag dito. Itong pangyayari, mali. Kung mali, bakit natin susuportahan? Dapat suportahan po natin ang tama. Ang tama ho magdadala sa atin sa maaliwalas na kondisyon. 'Yung mali, dadalhin tayo sa kapahamakan," he said.
