The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, also say they are open to the creation of a commission that would investigate the cases of victims of the decades-old conflict.
A guerrilla known by the alias Victoria Sandino Palmera read a statement Thursday expressing gratitude to 62 American legislators who signed a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry backing the peace process and a political solution to Colombia's conflict.
The FARC and representatives of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos restarted talks in the Cuban capital this week after a brief, planned recess.
