Colombian gov't seeks faster pace in FARC talks
The Associated Press
Humberto de la Calle told reporters Sunday after the team met with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos that a "faster pace" is needed. He asked society and the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia for help.
The talks formally began in Havana in November and paused for a holiday break. They have been focusing on agricultural reform, the thorniest topic on a five-point agenda.
Analysts say Santos will need to show results sooner than later if he wishes to win re-election next year.
A FARC unilateral cease-fire is set to end Jan. 20.
