Featured Kerry to Meet with FARC Delegates in Havana

Kerry will meet with both parties on the progress of the talks to end the armed conflict in Colombia.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with negotiators from the Colombian government and the FARC in Havana on Monday to discuss progress on the peace talks.    

Kerry will speak with the Colombian delegation and later with FARC spokespeople. The meeting will be presided by Ivan Marquez and Pablo Catatumbo, among other negotiators.    

The foreign ministers of Colombia and Cuba and Washington's envoy for the peace talks, Bernard Aronson, will also attend.    

Although both parties hoped to conclude talks by March 23, both Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and the leader of the FARC, Timoleon Jimenez, hinted at the possibility of extending discussions beyond the deadline to clarify certain issues.
