Peace and Negotiations

President Juan Manuel Santos instructed the government’s negotiating delegation in Cuba to “begin discussing the possibility of a bilateral and definitive ceasefire”.

With respect to President Santos’ statement, and the opportunity of reactivating the sub-commission responsible for dealing with point 3 in the peace-talks’ agenda, “the end of the conflict”, the FARC’s delegation manifested its consent. Nonetheless, the FARC still find Santos’ decision to maintain the Armed Forces in full operation against the guerrillas somewhat ambiguous.

With respect to the dialogues with the ELN, President Santos announced that he “looks forward to settle, together with this organization, on an agenda that can set in motion the beginning of a peace process with the guerrilla group”.
