2014-04-03 05:04:02 - Colombia Defence and Security Report Q2 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The most significant development regarding Colombia´s defence and security situation during Q114 has been the ongoing peace talks between the government of President Juan Manuel Santos, and the left-wing FARC-EP guerrilla movement. However, violence has continued in the background, with a December 2013 attack by the government on a FARC position in central Colombia killing 10 rebels, including a senior commander.
Topics under current discussion are said to include: the FARC-EP´s future participation in the democratic process; the issue of compensation being paid to the movement´s victims; and any judicial proceedings which could be mounted against the FARC-EP´s membership. For its part FARC has put forward proposals for ´regulated´ production and cultivation of certain illegal narcotics, fuelling speculation that it is
at least partly involved in drugs trafficking.
The issue of drugs continues to elevate Colombia´s status as a pivotal strategic location in the Americas. It has recently entered into a join task force with Panama on its northern border, and continues to enjoy a strong defence relationship with the US, which is concerned by criminality and terrorism connected to the drugs trade.
