The president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, announced this Saturday an agreement with the ELN guerrilla to allow the safe return of an indigenous people displaced from the west of the country, the first since the resumption of peace negotiations.

The first point of agreement that we reached with the ELN, in barely a week of these dialogues, is that the return of the populations displaced by that organization from Embera indigenous territories to their reservations is allowed,” the president said during a public act in the municipality of Dabeiba (northwest).

These peace talks are part of the “total peace” project with which the government of Gustavo Petro seeks to negotiate with illegal armed groups and give the citizenry participation in those talks, reported the newspaper El Colombiano.

ANDThe same medium indicated that the government negotiating team in these peace talks is made up of Otty Patiño, Iván Cepeda, María José Pizarro, Orlando Romero, Olga Silva López and José Félix Lafaurie, among others.
