Retired General: Colombian Army Will Be Ready to Fight FARC Holdouts

BOGOTA – The Colombian armed forces will be ready to fight any FARC members who are against the final peace agreement signed in Havana, retired army Gen. Jorge Enrique Mora Rangel said on Monday.

Mora, who was a member of the government’s negotiating team at the peace talks, said at a Bogota news conference that it is “possible” that a small contingent of Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, rebels might continue to refuse to accept the final agreement.

He added that, so far, local authorities have received information that “a small group of FARC (members) have expressed disagreement” over the peace process.

It is expected that top FARC officials, who were part of the Havana peace talks, will resolve the problem, he said.

Nevertheless, Mora reiterated that the Colombian armed forces, the National Police, the national government and the Defense Ministry are closely monitoring the situation and will act as the circumstances warrant.

“The (armed) forces have clear plans to deal with the dissent,” the retired general said.

The government’s negotiating team on Monday came to the Presidential Palace in Bogota, the seat of the executive branch, to explain the details of last Wednesday’s final peace agreement along with the bilateral and definitive cease-fire between the FARC and the government that commenced at midnight.
