Archbishop says peace process in Colombia to continue under same conditions

.- The president of the Bishops’ Conference of Colombia, Archbishop Luis Augusto Castro, said this week peace talks between the government and the Marxist rebels of FARC will continue held under the same conditions, and he expressed his hope that the guerrilla leaders would adopt a new attitude to help bring to the two sides together.

“This is not about inventing something new, but rather supporting the efforts that have been made up to now both by the government and the international community, and looking for a new attitude from the FARC in order to facilitate this,” the archbishop said after meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe and other government officials.

Archbishop Castro said the bishops would continue to keep the door open to dialogue with the Marxist rebels and that he hoped the FARC would respond with openness as well.
