Colombia’s government and the left-wing National Liberation Army, ELN, rebel group have announced plans to re-establish peace talks.

A statement jointly signed by ELN commanders Antonio Garcia and Pablo Beltran as well as the country’s high commissioner for peace, Danilo Rueda, revealed that delegations will restart negotiations after the first week of November.

The statement noted that Norway, Venezuela and Cuba would be guarantor states in the talks and that the participation of civil society groups would be essential.

Rueda had travelled to Cuba to meet ELN representatives in Havana just days after the August inauguration of Gustavo Petro, the first left-wing president to lead Colombia.
