FARC Leader Says New Agreement Is Victory of Peace

HAVANA – The leader of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia said on Saturday on Twitter that peace is emerging as the winner following the signing of a new peace agreement with the government of Juan Manuel Santos in Havana.

Timoleon Jimenez “Timochenko” added that the Colombian people should endorse this agreement.

“We have made our greatest effort to respond to the aspirations of peace and we have accomplished it,” said Timochenko, whose real name is Rodrigo Londoño Echeverri, in another tweet.

The guerrilla leader is in Havana with the rest of his negotiating team, although he did not take part in Saturday’s signing of the new agreement and its announcement.

The document was signed by the chief negotiators of the government and the guerrillas, Humberto de la Calle and Ivan Marquez (alias of Luciano Arango), respectively.

The new peace agreement comes on the heels of an earlier one signed on Sept. 26 in Cartagena, which was rejected by the Colombians in a plebiscite on Oct. 2.

In a joint statement released by the negotiating delegations, the parties urged Colombia and the international community to support the new pact, leave behind the tragedy of the war and make way for peace.
