Juan Manuel Santos says conditions are favourable for peace and that negotiations with FARC are underway.

    The millions of people displaced by conflict in Colombia are paying close attention to the news that could have a direct impact on their lives.

    Expanding on comments he made last week, President Juan Manuel Santos said that negotiations with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia are underway.

    Santos also said that present conditions are more favourable for peace than in the past.
