Sulu Sultanate eyes Vatican support on Sabah standoff
Oil-rich island has 30 percent Christian populationBy By Edd K. Usman

To win the Vatican’s support on the Sabah standoff, the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo on Monday visited the headquarters of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) for a meeting with the Catholic leaders.


The sultanate's spokesman, Abraham J. Idjirani, spoke highly of the CBCP whose "influence should not be neglected”, he said.

The sultan, her daughter Princess Jacel, Idjirani, and Pastor "Boy" Saycon, hope their visit would invite the attention of the CBCP leaders and, ultimately, the Vatican under the new pontiff, Pope Francis.

Idjirani, who also serves as the sultanate's secretary-general, said the sultan eyes the Vatican support in light of Pope Francis’ open friendliness towards Muslims.

"This Sabah issue concerns geopolitics. We need the Vatican’s support here,” he said.

Idjirani added that about 25 percent to 30 percent of the 3 million people in Sabah are Christian.

"The Sultan wants to assure the CBCP and the Holy See that in case Sabah is returned to the Sultanate of Sulu, all religions will be respected according to the teachings of Islam," said Idjirani.

He said Islam teaches Muslims to not belittle any religion because it is a "mortal sin says Allah (God).”

Kiram and his party presented documents to the CBCP that support the sultanate's Sabah claim.
