Depending on the meeting with President Alvaro Uribe, Cordoba could secure the release of five soldiers kidnapped by the FARC, the Senator told Radio Caracol. Pablo Emilio Moncayo, who is in FARC captivity for eleven years, would be one of the soldiers to be released.
According to Cordoba, the liberation of the hostages cannot be pushed forward until she meets Uribe to discuss and define her participation.
One week ago, Colombia’s President authorized Cordoba to participate in negotiations to free
24 FARC hostages.
Families of the kidnapped soldiers and politicians ask the FARC to make public the names of the five hostages to be released to avoid false hopes and expectations.
