UN celebrates agreement between Colombia and Second Marquetalia group

Bogotá, June 30 (Prensa Latina) The special representative of the UN Secretary General in Colombia, Carlos Ruiz, today welcomed the agreements of the Dialogue Table between the Government and the insurgent group Segunda Marquetalia, in message posted in his social network.

The delegations of the Government of Colombia and the Second Marquetalia agreed in Caracas, Venezuela, on a plan of measures to reduce tensions in the armed conflict.

A statement issued between both parties highlighted the “constructive atmosphere” in the sessions of this first dialogue, held between June 24 and 29.

He specified that the comprehensive implementation of the de-escalation will begin upon the entry into force of the Presidential Decree suspending offensive military operations, in whose areas the Public Force will provide security conditions.

The parties also agreed to develop a set of early distribution measures for “reparation of victims of the conflict in areas where territorial transformation activities for peace are carried out,” in addition to prioritizing comprehensive agrarian reform and land restitution programs.

The joint text thanked the support and accompaniment of Cuba, Norway and Venezuela, the representatives of the Episcopal Conference and the United Nations, and requested the Caribbean island to host the next cycle of negotiations in Havana, in the second week of August.
