Timochenko Leaves Cuba for Colombia to Sign New Peace Agreement

BOGOTA – The top leader of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Rodrigo Londońo Echeverri, alias “Timochenko,” announced on Sunday that he departed from Cuba and is going to Colombia for the signing of the new peace agreement agreed between the Colombian Government and the FARC in Havana.

“I don’t know the details, I’m prepared, I’m asking that we finish soon, I’m going to pack the suitcase to leave for Bogota,” said Timochenko in an interview with Noticias RCN in Havana.

The announcement of Timochenko’s trip to Colombia was made after Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos announced that on Nov. 23 he will present the new peace accord to the Colombian Congress so that the Congress can discuss it and determine the way to legalize the agreement.

FARC’s top leader also said that the agreement with the Government is waiting to be legalized through the Congress.

“We need to endorse that agreement to begin laying the foundations and sow the seeds of reconciliation and peace in our homeland,” Timochenko said.

So far, the Colombian government has not spoken about Timochenko’s trip to Colombia.

The Colombian government peace negotiating team wrote on their Twitter account that they have not yet determined “neither date nor place” for the signing of the document.

The revised peace agreement, agreed on Nov. 12 in Havana, includes contributions from sectors opposed to the original treaty, which was narrowly rejected by Colombians in a referendum on Oct. 2.
