The Government of Colombia said no to the offer of the National Liberation Army (ELN) to restart peace talks, broken since last January after a deadly car bomb attack.
The commissioner for Peace of the New Granada country, Miguel Ceballos placeholder image, he told Colombian radio station W Radio that he will only return to the table for talks when that guerrilla suspends his actions.
As you will remember, last Wednesday the ELN delegates expressed their intention to talk about peace with the President of Colombia, Iván Duque, in a text sent to the Organization of the United Nations (UN), the Vatican and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
"Our duty is to continue looking for the political solution to the conflict," said the organization in the document that was released in Havana, Cuba, the site of the frustrated talks it held with the former president's government. Juan Manuel Santos.
Once Duque assumed power, he imposed conditions to continue negotiating and finally decided to break the process.
