Colombian singer Juanes invited the FARC to a dialogue to seek a
political solution to Colombia’s 44-year old armed conflict that
according to the singer “has completely lost direction.”
“I think that a dialogue s the solution. Colombia wants peace and we need them [the guerrillas] to be part of that dialogue,” the rocker told Caracol Radio.
Juanes expressed confidence the FARC would reconsider and sit down with the government to negotiate peace.
Colombian vice-President Francisco Santos repeated on the same radio station the government’s willingness to negotiate a humanitarian deal with the rebels, but added that according to the government the rebels have closed all the doors despite their weak position.
