The former senator, suspended from Congress for her alleged ties to the guerrilla group, told family members of hostages at a meeting that on August 3 she will reveal details about a unilateral hostage release.
“Once the guerrillas keep their word and surrender the hostages, the government will sit down with them,” Cordoba told the family members.
According to the politician, the FARC will release the hostages unilaterally.
On August 3, when the Senator presides a meeting of Colombians for Peace, the peace advicacy group she founded, she will also reveal new developments regarding the FARC’s response to President Juan Manuel Santos‘ demands to start peace talks with Latin America’s oldest and largest guerrilla group.
The President has repeatedly said the door to peace talks is open if the FARC release their hostages and cease all terrorist activity.
The Marixist guerrilla group has been fighting the Colombian state since 1964.
