PONDORES, Colombia, Feb 2 (BERNAMA-NNN-EFE)–Colombian army officers and leaders of the FARC rebel group shook hands in this northern town on Wednesday to mark the official end of a conflict that began in 1964. The ceremonial meeting took place in one of the 26 transitional zones, collectively known as ZVTN, where the roughly 6,300 remaining fighters in the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) are gathering to prepare for disarmament and demobilisation under the terms of a peace accord signed in November.
