      Jimmy Carter to Assess Colombia peace talks
      Rob Edmond. Colombia Reports. January 11, 2013

      The United States former president Jimmy Carter will travel to Bogota Saturday to assess the ongoing peace talks between Colombia's government and its largest leftist guerrilla group, the FARC.

      Carter, president between 1977 and 1981 and a winner of the nobel peace prize, was invited to a dinner by Colombia's president Juan Manuel Santos in the country's capital.

      Santos noted in a press conference that Carter "will meet with some of the ministers and the negotiating team" further noting that "President Carter is coming to give us his support for the process."

      The government negotiation team will then travel back to Cuba to resume peace talks that seek an agreement with the FARC on an agricultural policy, making it the first agenda to be agreed on and a step closer to ending the decades long civil conflict.

      Carter had expressed his will to contribute to the peace talks after they were anounced by Santos last year.Jimmy Carter to Assess Colombia peace talks
