Colombia and rebels fix new date for peace talks
The long–awaited peace talks between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the government of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in Norway have been delayed another week, with the two sides agreeing to start talks on October 15 and hold a joint press conference on the 17th.
The Colombian government hopes the negotiations – the first such talks in a decade – will lead to the end of Latin America’s longest-running civil conflict.
The FARC have battled the Colombian government since 1964.
