Colombia paralyzes dialogue with ELN after new guerrilla attacks

"I would like to assure you that the government is not walking away from peace", Colombian Vice President Oscar Naranjo told the council. In a follow-up tweet, the former Colombian senator said, "Colombia demands peace".

Peace talks with the smaller ELN, whose founders in the 1960s included radical Roman Catholic priests, began last February. The ceasefire did not continue as reports say the rebels want a new deal with the government. Monseñor Darío de Jesús Monsalve said in a statement: "In these circumstances. someone has to break the cycle and turn it into a cycle of peace".

The ministry said on Twitter that the nation's military has been ordered to resume operations against rebels "with full intensity and force".

Monsalve stated his hope "that the parties [would] welcome a third party, which could well be the Church and the Holy See, or one of the countries that accompany the Quito Roundtable, to agree that a will be returned and maintained. cease [fire], giving opportunity and word to the new government team ".

According to data of the United Nations Verification Commission of the Peace Process, many pending cases in reintegration of ex-FARC rebels into society are still urgent to resolve, which is key for stabilization in areas affected by the clashes.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is heading to Colombia this weekend to support peace efforts amid growing concerns about the integration of the country's largest rebel group and new attacks by the last rebel holdouts. "In this situation I have spoken with head of government delegation in Quito to return immediately to assess future of process". "Whoever tries to obstruct its work will be (dealt with legally)".

"Despite these incidents, the negotiations should not be detained in a bid to find a political exit for the conflict", they added.

Leftist Senator of the Polo party Ivan Cepeda published an open letter Tuesday to all 12 presidential candidates that urged them to support an extension of the ceasefire.

The ceasefire agreement, known as the Bilateral, Temporary and National Ceasefire Agreement expired January 9., 101 days after it was reached in September, also in Quito.

"The national government deplores the ELN's decision to resume its terrorist attacks against the civilian population, the armed forces and infrastructure", Santos said in a broadcast.

His trip was announced Wednesday as the Security Council was meeting to discuss the United Nations mission in Colombia monitoring the 2016 cease-fire agreement that ended more than a half century of conflict between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the largest rebel group known as the FARC.
