The discussions seek to contribute to bringing the over 50-year-long armed conflict in the South American country to an end
Members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) and the National Liberation Army (ELN) arrived in Havana May 9, to discuss the peace process between the FARC-EP and the Colombian government.
According to a Cuban television report, the meeting, with the support of Cuban authorities, seeks to contribute to bringing the over 50-year-long armed conflict in the South American country to an end.
The Colombian government and the ELN will resume official talks this May 16 in Quito, Ecuador, after being adjourned for the meeting between members of this guerilla group and the FARC-EP in Havana.
Talks between the Juan Manuel Santos administration and the ELN began on February 7 with the key objective of ending the over 52-year-long conflict and reaching a similar agreement to that achieved between the FARC-EP and the Colombian government in November 2016.
