The National Liberation Army (ELN), the main active guerrilla in Colombia, announced on Monday that it would end its unilateral ceasefire on April 30 due to the government’s “belligerent” position, and stressed that it would resume operations as of this date.
“The National Liberation Army reports that the active unilateral ceasefire as a gesture for the country ends at midnight on April 30,” the guerrillas said in a statement.
He also stressed that “impartial institutions that followed up the demolition report were fulfilling the obligations of the ELN,” while criticizing the executive for failing to follow in the footsteps of the humanitarian tragedy and declaring an armistice for the Colombian people. “
“It was unfortunate that the (President, Iván) Duque government had not responded to each other or listened to the suggestions we had made to advance the search for peace,” he said.
