Cuba, Colombia Govt. Discuss Peace Process with ELN Guerilla

Havana, Jul 30 (Prensa Latina) Foreign Ministers of Cuba and Colombia, Bruno Rodriguez and Maria Angela Holguin, respectively, discussed the peace process with the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Havana, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced today.

According to the source, the meeting took place during the weekend, as part of Holguín’s visit to Cuba.

The Colombian foreign minister was accompanied by the High Commissioner for Peace, Rodrigo Rivera, and by other personalities involved in the talks aimed at imitating the agreement reached with the Revolutionary Armed Forces-People’s Army (FARC-EP) to end the conflict.

Cuba also hosted the dialogue between the government of President Juan Manuel Santos and the FARC-EP, a process which led to the signing of an agreement in November 2016, resulting in the demobilization of the guerrillas and the beginning of the incorporation of their members into political and civil life.

Holguin traveled to the island in the context of the closing of the sixth round of talks with the ELN, a process expected to culminate in a ceasefire agreement.
