Colombia, FARC Peace Talks

April 7, 2013 by  

Colombia, FARC Peace Talks, Colombian rebel leader Pablo Catatumbo has joined the team of FARC negotiators hammering out a peace deal in Havana, a move that could help the Marxist group garner more support from low-ranking guerrillas to end the country’s five-decade conflict.

Catatumbo, who is sought by the United States for drug trafficking, went to Havana with other members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, to reinforce the negotiating team, the rebel group said in a statement on Sunday.

“Colombia’s destiny cannot be war … let’s move forward with the fight for peace and social justice,” the statement said.

Government negotiators and FARC leaders have been meeting since November to reach a deal that would end a conflict that has killed tens of thousands since it began in 1964. When talks started, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said he hoped there would be an agreement within a year.
