Colombian government and ELN begin cessation of offensive operations

The peace delegations of the Government and the ELN will meet in the Cuban capital in order to approve the eight guidelines for the cessation of hostilities between both parties that should come into effect on August 3.

To this end, a government subcommittee has been working in Havana on the protocols since June 19, according to what was reported in the Colombian media, both parties have sealed an agreement on them.

The members of the government delegation have analyzed in Cuba since last Wednesday the documents that the subcommittee worked on.

The members of the peace delegation of the insurgent group have done the same. The parties have worked separately and will only meet in plenary this Monday.

Among the protocols to be agreed upon, there is one referring to the evaluation, extension or suspension of the ceasefire.

They will also review the one related to the role that the dialogue table will have in the development of the ceasefire, and there will be another guideline on the performance of the Church in monitoring the ceasefire.

The review of the security and protection conditions for the members of the Monitoring and Verification Mechanism will be another protocol to be analyzed by the peace delegations.

Another of the protocols is related to the security conditions and guarantees for the ELN and the places where it is present; that is, how the members of the guerrilla will be located and how the separation of forces is guaranteed.

There will be one more on the social oversight that created the table and another that is in charge of regulating the humanitarian protection mechanisms. These last two represent a novelty as they are included for the first time in these ceasefire exercises.

The announcements made between the Colombian government and the ELN are expected to give signs that the upcoming ceasefire will lead to an improvement in the situation in the territories where the insurgent group is present.

On August 14, the peace delegations of both parties will hold the fourth cycle of dialogue, this time, in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.
