Mexico wants to aid Colombia-rebel talks

Mexico has offered to lend its hand in proposed talks between the Colombian government and one of the nation’s rebel groups, news sources reported Monday.

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe said over the weekend that he was willing to negotiate a peaceful resolution with the left-wing rebel group the National Liberation Army, or ELN, even if they do not put down their arms during the talks.

Not that this would be the first such talks, but it would be a positive move if talks did take place. Surely the ELN knows that they have no hope of victory and that some sort of political solution is the only way to stop the fighting save for fighting to the last man in a lost cause.
