Santos reiterates Government’s position and rejects Farc attacks
From Santiago de Chile, where he is attending the CELAC Summit, President Juan Manuel Santos said the Government will not let its guard down and will continue to condemn all terrorist attacks perpetrated by the Farc guerrilla.
Mr. Santos adamantly rejected the kidnapping of two police officers in Valle del Cauca and said that ever since the unilateral truce came to an end, Farc has resumed terrorist acts, “as predicted.” The President said he hopes the guerrilla hears pleas from the international community asking them to stop attacking civilians and officers protecting the nation.
“The Government’s decision has been clear: we will not let our guard down on any front and much less in the military front until we reach agreements (…)”, Mr. Santos said.
After addressing the press at the conclusion of the Summit, Colombia’s President planned to meet with Cuban President, Raul Castro, to discuss issues that include Clombia’s peace talks with Farc.
