The president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, denied categorically that his government is negotiating with the FARC the structure of the police and described as “malicious” the statements of the Attorney General´s Office in this regard.
“It’s a really perverse conclusion that by simply saying that I have not thought about the entry of demobilized to the Police, but I did not rule it out, to conclude that this means we are negotiating the security forces in Havana,” he said in Paris, this Tuesday when concluding an official visit to France.
“We are not negotiating the security forces in Havana. That has been a sharp, clear position from the beginning of the negotiations, despite the multiple intentions of the FARC to discuss this issue,” said Santos.
The head of state said that “it is malicious” that “the Attorney General´s Office itself say today in a statement this is true,” and rejected the behavior of the organism.
Santos lamented that “enemies” of the peace process distort reality with “misinterpretations” and hoped that “the Colombian people realize that misconduct.”
The Colombian government and the FARC advance negotiations over two years ago in Cuba to end an armed conflict of more than five decades.
