Negotiations over Peace Agreement with FARC in Colombia Make Progress

BOGOTA – With progress in matters relating to rural reform and political participation, negotiations on changes to the peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) concluded on Saturday.

The talks seek consensus to modify the peace agreement signed by the government of President Juan Manuel Santos with the FARC guerrillas, which failed to win approval in the Oct. 2 referendum.

Participants include representatives of the Colombian government, Uribism and other sectors that voted “no” in the referendum.

“We welcome the constructive and positive tone of the meeting, achieved consensus and progress in comprehensive rural reform issues and participation in politics and opened a discussion on the subject of political eligibility,” said former presidential candidate and Uribist Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, who voted in favor of modifications to the agreement.

The government’s chief negotiator, Humberto de la Calle, said in a statement that the meeting will continue Monday to find “a national agreement that gives broader support to a possible new agreement that is signed in Havana with the FARC guerrilla group.”

Santos said on Saturday from Cartagena in the framework of the 25th Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government that he had instructed the negotiators not to stop talks until all points of opposition to the agreement are cleared.
