Córdoba talked with Christophe Beney for an hour and both parties felt the meeting had gone well, sources within the Red Cross told Caracol Radio.
The Red Cross wants to handle the process leading to the liberation of the two politicians and four members of the security forces with “extreme caution”, seeks a quick release and will not intervene in the formation of the commission to pick up the hostages, the radio station said.
Colombia’s largest guerrilla group FARC announced the release of the hostages in December and allows both Córdoba and the Red Cross to prepare the pick up. The guerrillas also demand a foreign observer, something the Colombian Government fiercely opposes.
Córdoba expects the hostages to be free before January 15.
