Colombia to restart peace talks with ELN rebels

Havana (AFP) – Colombia’s government gives the green light to resume peace talks with the country’s largest remaining rebel force, a key electoral promise that brought leftist President Gustavo Petro to power earlier this week. Colombian government officials met with members of the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Havana, where they have been based since 2018, with Bogota saying it officially recognizes the “legitimacy of dialogue… in the search for peace.”
