Colombian rebels reject conditions for resuming peace talks

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Prospects for the resumption of peace talks between Colombia’s government and the country’s last remaining rebel group are dimming even as the group reaffirmed its willingness to release six captives.

The National Liberation Army said Monday that it was willing to “liberate” a group of policemen and civilians it captured in August. But the rebels also accused President Ivan Duque of breaking promises made by his predecessor and said they will not accept his “unilateral” conditions.

Duque suspended peace talks with the rebel group after he was sworn into office a month ago, saying he would not resume negotiations until the rebels ceased all criminal activities, including kidnappings and attacks on oil pipelines.

The ELN has said it will only cease attacks if the government agrees to a bilateral ceasefire.
