Bogotà. Elements of the National Liberation Army (ELN) met with Colombian President Lenin Moreno on Aug 28 to discuss a ceasefire ahead of Pope Francis’ visit to the country in September, Reuters reported. The ELN previously suggested they would be willing to move forward with a unilateral ceasefire as a goodwill gesture for peace negotiations if a bilateral one is not possible.
