MADRID, 13 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, has announced on Monday the opening of a "second peace process" with the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) who did not join the agreement in 2016.
"A second peace process begins. A table will be established between the government and the Central General Staff," Petro reported in a message posted on Twitter.
Petro's text also responds to a message published by the Caracol Radio station that highlights that the Colombian attorney general, Francisco Barbosa, has suspended the arrest warrants against 19 guerrillas led by alias 'Iván Mordisco' with whom there will be approaches to negotiate a process of peace".
Barbosa has indicated that "those arrest warrants are suspended based on the legal and constitutional capacities of the President of the Republic that are determined, in that, for him, that organization endows it with a political character to negotiate peace agreements with the government national".
These negotiations with the FARC are added to those currently underway with the other major guerrilla in the country, the National Liberation Army (ELN).
