Colombian Government Says Peace Agreement with FARC-EP Will Be Signed Soon

Bogota, July 18 (RHC-PL)-- In an interview with the Colombian newspaper El Nuevo Siglo, retired general, Oscar Naranjo, a member of the delegation of the Colombian government has said that the signing of the peace agreement with the FARC-EP will take place within weeks.

On June 23rd, both sides signed a ceasefire agreement, which includes the terms and guidelines for the bilateral ceasefire and disarmament of the insurgent group.  Naranjo added that the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army (FARC-EP) must reach agreements on the mechanisms to reintegrate their combatants into civilian life.

Despite this unresolved issue, the final agreement with the FARC-EP will be signed this year, Naranjo said.  The peace talks with the FARC-EP started in Cuba in 2012 and as a result, both delegations signed agreements on issues, such as the victims of the conflict, comprehensive rural reform, political participation and fight against drug trafficking.
