Uribe Proposes Talks with FARC to Advance Peace Pact

BOGOTA – The former president of Colombia and opposition leader for the Democratic Center proposed on Wednesday to create a table with the government, the FARC and advocates of the “no” vote to recover the peace agreement defeated in the plebiscite early this month.

The proposal, outlined in a statement by Uribe’s party, insists on a National Pact to move forward with the Havana agreement, with Uribe saying that under these conditions, the Democratic Center will support the implementation of the agreement in the Colombian Congress.

The declaration reiterates the need for peace and also to reform the agreement signed between the FARC and the government.

On Sept. 26, the peace agreement between the government and the FARC was signed in Cartagena after nearly four years of negotiations in Havana to end the armed conflict between the rural-based Marxist guerrilla group and the Colombian government.

The pact was rejected in a plebiscite on Oct. 2 and, since then, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has sought to create a national consensus with different political forces and social sectors to save the initiative.

In recent days, the head of state has said his government continues to listen to the different “no” and “yes” perspectives in order to form a new peace agreement.
