UN Secretary General 'Trusts' Colombian Peace Process

Colombian government suspends peace negotiations after attacks by country's last rebel group

The worldwide community and Guterres have called on the Santos administration and ELN leadership to resume the ceasefire and peace talks that began in February past year.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres is telling Colombians there is no justification for armed violence following recent attacks by the nation's last remaining rebel group after the expiration of a temporary cease-fire.

The ELN, declared a 102-day ceasefire - their first ever - in October, supervised by the United Nations and the Roman Catholic Church.

Suspected rebels from Colombia's National Liberation Army (ELN) abducted the state oil company worker on Saturday from an office in Saravena, near the border with Venezuela, local media reported. They were formed in the 1960s by a group of students, intellectuals and Catholic radicals, of which Camilo Torres is the most well-known.

In southern Narino province, which concentrates the majority of coca leaf crops - the raw material that makes cocaine - there are hundreds of former members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) who decided not to adhere to the peace accord signed late in 2016.

We ask him not to falter in his commitment to peace, we hope that his presence in Colombia will be the impetus needed to continue building a stable and lasting peace.

Peace talks between the 4000-strong Marxist rebels and the Colombian government were abruptly suspended Wednesday, January 11, after the ELN attacked an army garrison in the department of Arauca killing a soldier and then detonated an explosive on the country's main oil and gas pipeline Caño Limon Coveñas. The ELN wants the incidents "to not alternate the course of the conversations, and to find a political solution for the conflict".

The United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has begun his first official visit to Colombia as the head of this worldwide organization.
