Doubts over Farc’s supposed intention to demobilize
A statement supposedly released by the Farc guerrilla, in which the group claims it will turn in their weapons and demobilize, has raised doubt among Colombians who are questioning its veracity. A few minutes after learning of the message, President Juan Manuel Santos said that, if the statement was indeed made by Farc, “what we need to see are true acts of peace.”
In a portion of the text the group says it will express its political views through Marcha Patriótica , the leftist movement created last March.
The Government, he said, “welcomes approaches to peace,” but added that “Colombians are skeptical, we don’t believe, they’ve made us believe many times, but what we need here are true acts towards peace.”
