FARC-EP, Colombian Govt Resume Talks to Sign Peace Accord

Prensa Latina News Agency - 

Havana, Jan 13 (Prensa Latina) Delegations from the FARC-EP and the Colombian government resumed here today talk sessions aimed at ending the armed conflict they has maintained for more than 50 years, in a year called to be for peace.
In that respect, in statements to the press, the negotiator for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People's Army (FARC-EP), Joaquin Gomez, described as unlikely the materialization of an agreement between the two sides on the fixed date.
We will make the impossible, Gomez said, but there are objective factors concerning both sides and will surely prevent the signing of the peace accord on March 23, the day announced in September by President Juan Manuel Santos and the leader of the insurgent group, Timoleon Jimenez .

FARC-EP representatives, the largest guerrilla group in Colombia, and the government of that country, have developed peace talks in Havana since November 2012.

The round of talks started today, the first of 2016, expects that a new stage in the process, characterized by greater dynamism to facilitate completion of an armed conflict that has killed about 300,000 people, is opened.
