A high-ranking member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia has revealed the names of the rebel group's five main negotiators for peace talks with the government.
The lead negotiators are Ivan Marquez, Ricardo Tellez, Andres Paris, Marco Leon Calarca and Simon Trinidad — all veteran leaders of the 48-year insurgency. Trinidad is serving a prison sentence in the U.S.
The FARC leader spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of a formal announcement.
The talks start in Norway next month.
The negotiations were announced last week in Colombia and Cuba, which is acting as a guarantor for the process.
