Colombia Conflict In Its Final Stage: President Santos

“FARC leaders ‘feel cornered”: Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos

President Juan Manuel Santos claimed the armed conflict that has plagued the country for nearly 50 years is in its final stage and ordered the armed forces to increase operations until peace is declared, according to Carocol Radio.

President Juan Manuel Santos claimed the 50-year armed conflict that has plagued the country is in its final stage, and ordered the armed forces to increase operations under peace is declared.

Santos told four battalions and three mobile brigades that will be sent to areas known to have the greatest problems of public order, that they had the opportunity to “make history, with this mission the country will find peace because these places are where the war persists.”

President Santos told the military members that they would be able to “tell their grandchildren they were there in the period when peace was achieved after 50 years of war.”

Santos finally warned soldiers to be extremely cautious as the FARC, Colombia’s oldest and largest guerilla group, was acting in a strange way, claiming their leaders ‘felt cornered.’
