By

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and the leaders of the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) guerrilla will meet today in Cuba’s capital Havana, where negotiations are underway to end the decades long conflict in the South American country, diplomatic sources refer.

“Peace is close”, Santos wrote on his Twitter account, announcing a trip to Cuba to “accelerate the negotiations”. Later, also FARC leader Timoleon Jimenez (known as ‘Timoshenko’) confirmed that he will be in Havana.

According to the Telesur TV, the two will sign a deal “on justice and indemnification” for the victims of the conflict, estimated to be at least 220,000. Sources indicate that the meeting should also be attended by Cuba’s President Raul Castro.
