Colombia's largest rebel group gives “unanimous approval” to peace deal

PanARMENIAN.Net - Colombia's largest rebel group has given its approval to a peace deal agreed with the government after nearly four years of talks, according to BBC News.

The announcement of the unanimous decision by Farc members was made at the end of their conference.

"The war is over," said the group's chief negotiator, Ivan Marquez.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and Farc leader Timoleon Jimenez, known as Timochenko, will sign the agreement at a ceremony on Monday, September 26.

But the deal will only be implemented if it is approved by the majority of Colombian voters in a referendum on 2 October.

The Farc's 10th Conference was held in the remote Yari plains region, one of the group's strongholds in southern Colombia.
