After a four-day extension of the 37th round of talks between the Colombian government and the FARC that had been launched on May 21, the parties ended their cycle yesterday. In a joint communiqué, they reported new advances at the table regarding the topic of “victims”–namely, an agreement to establish a Commission for the Clarification of Truth, Harmony and Non-Repetition that would be activated once the final peace agreement is signed. More to come, but in the meantime, here’s the link to the full report in Spanish: 2015_0604 Comunicado conjunto Gobierno Nacional y FARC-EP No.53. You can read the report in English here.
