Unheard! The narco guerrillas FARC wants to meet all southamerican Presidents in a Summit of UNASUR.

The guerrilla leader Cano represented the FARC in frustrated talks with the government of President César Gaviria (1990-1994) in Caracas and in the Mexican city of Tlaxcala, in 1991 and 1992. In fact, those talks were a pretext so the FARC could gain the control of extense areas in Colombia.

Before the last summit of the UNASUR (Union of South American Nations)  the President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez proposed to country members of Unasur the “need for peace in Colombia after decades of violence, and for this a political negotiation with the guerrillas is essential”. This initiative of Chavez was confirmed by his foreign relations Minister, Nicolas Maduro during a trip last July to Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Uruguay.

Now, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) on last Monday reiterated its willingness to seek a “political solution” to the Colombian conflict and called on the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) to convene a meeting to present their “vision.”

“Mr. Presidents of UNASUR, at their discretion we are ready to present at a meeting of UNASUR our vision of the Colombian conflict,” says an “open letter” of the Secretariat of the General Staff of the FARC released Monday by an agency akin to that group armed.

The letter, released by the News Agency New Colombia (Anncol), which usually broadcasts the pronouncements of the rebel group, is dated “August 2010” in the “mountains of Colombia.”

FARC´s wants “talks”.-

Last July ,  the top leader of the FARC, Guillermo León Sáenz, alias “Alfonso Cano”, send a video message to the colombian press proposing to the Colombian president, Juan Manuel Santos, who took office on Aug. 7, to initiate “talks” to overcome the “terrible situation” in the country.
