Hopes are high that finally 50 years of violence and conflict in Columbia could be resolved. The Columbian government and the country’s Marxist rebel movement FARC have completed their first round of exploratory talks in Oslo and at a press conference they announced that the next round of meetings will take place on 15th November in Havana, Cuba.

Fifty years of armed rebellion has resulted in something of a stalemate with neither side apparently able to strike a decisive blow. This is not the first time that the two sides have attempted to negotiate, but previous attempts ended in shambles. This time however, with elections looming in 2014, commentators hope the talks can be successful.

The meetings are also to be attended by representatives from Chile and Venezuela, and both Cuba and Norway have agreed to act as guarantors.
