Bogota, Jul 6 (Prensa Latina) Colombian President Gustavo Petro issued a decree ordering a bilateral and temporary national ceasefire with the National Liberation Army (ELN).

The measure will be in force from August 3, 2023, to January 29, 2024, and may be extended on the basis of the assessment made at the Peace Dialogue Table of the reports submitted by the Monitoring and Verification Mechanism, and as agreed by the parties.
