Colombia’s second-largest rebel group has said it is ready to begin formal peace talks with the government, days after a historic peace deal was signed with the country’s largest rebel group.
Negotiations between National Liberation Army (ELN) rebels and the government have been delayed over the ELN’s continuous kidnappings. An earlier deal signed with Farc rebels has ended more than 50 years of war.
The government called on the ELN to free its remaining hostages. At least four people are still being held by the Marxist group, the government said.
