HAVANA (AP) — Colombian government representatives say peace talks with the country's main guerrilla group have advanced but the nation's development model and political system are not up for debate.
Humberto de la Calle is the government's chief negotiator at the talks in Havana. He says the two sides are still working toward an agreement under which the Revolutionary Armed Forces, or FARC, would lay down their arms and become a social and political organization.
Colombia and the FARC have been sitting across the negotiating table in the Cuban capital since Nov. 19 seeking a deal to an end the country's violent, decades-old conflict.
De la Calle spoke Friday as talks wrapped up for a holiday break. The government delegation and the FARC issued a joint statement saying negotiations will resume Jan. 14.
