FARC leader Timoleón Jiménez wrote an answer to Senator Álvaro Uribe Vélez today, inviting him again to talk. Here are some parts of his open letter translated into English:
With great satisfaction, we have recently known and read the open letter signed by you, in which with great civil courage and patriot responsibility, you make a call to moderate the language used in the debate about the possibility of reaching peace agreements with both the FARC-EP and the ELN.
After breathing the pure feeling of freedom that inspires traveling from Havana in the morning to the East,
In my free time I watch movies, read, and if inspiration hits me, I write, I venture verses that only I know.
