Ceasefire between ELN Guerrilla Group and Colombia’s Government Takes Effect

BOGOTA – The National Liberation Army (ELN) guerrilla group implemented the bilateral ceasefire agreement with the Colombian government on Sunday.

“As of this moment, and as our commander, Nicolas Rodriguez, said, the ELN will comply fully with the bilateral ceasefire,” the guerrilla group said in a Twitter post.

The bilateral ceasefire agreement will be in effect until Jan. 9, 2018, under the terms negotiated by the government and rebel leaders.

Rodriguez, known as “Gabino,” ordered all ELN units on Friday to observe the ceasefire effective on Sunday.

The 101-day bilateral ceasefire agreement is the biggest result of the talks between the government and ELN that started in February in Quito, Ecuador.

The peace negotiations appeared to have been stalled until the ceasefire was announced on Sept. 4.

The ceasefire is the first in the armed conflict involving the ELN since the rebel group began battling the government 53 years ago.
