Sympathizers of the procedures to finalize the conflicto of Colombia will hold in April the Peace Congress in which ideas will be presented to boost the implementation of the pacts signed with the FARC-EP, confirmed today its organizers. Social and political sectors supporters of the pacifying process define the details of the national gathering conceived with the aim of creating alliances and sketch actions that support the carrying out of all that was agreed by both the Government and the guerrilla.

They also pursue to support the talks with the other insurgent force, Ejercito de Liberacion Nacional (ELN), less numerous than the FARC-EP but equally active for the last half century, explained the organizing committee of the Congress.

The need of this Congress was born from the dangers that surround the present phase of implementation, explained the same source through the social networks.

Last November 24 president Juan Manuel Santos and the leader of the FARC-EP, Timoleon Jimenez, signed the definitive agreement with which they committed to end the hostile confrontation. One of the challenges in the present stage is to conclude the adaptation of temporary camps in the agreed locations and zones where the guerrilla will remain for several months until their reincorporation to civil life, given the delays in the construction of infrastructure.

To hasten the procedures in Congress of the so-called laws of peace is another of the imperatives to guarantee the success of the post-conflict period, warned politicians and analysts. Prensa Latina
