Colombia, FARC peace talks delayed until Monday
BOGOTA Nov 13 (Reuters) - Peace talks between the Colombian government and FARC rebels in Cuba will be delayed until Monday so both sides can work on "technical details," according to a joint statement sent by the president's office on Tuesday.
The talks had been set to begin on Thursday.
They are the latest in a long history of attempts to resolve a five-decade war that has left tens of thousands dead and millions more displaced since the founding of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
