Colombia Will not Cave to Political Pressure to End Peace Talks: Santos

Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos said on Tuesday he will not allow peace talks with FARC rebels to collapse under political pressure from the opposition and renewed calls for the Marxist group to show its commitment to end 50 years of war. While the attack prompted Santos to restart halted air raids against FARC camps, the opposition, spearheaded by ex-president Alvaro Uribe, say the rebels have abused the process. "It's easy to keep talking about war while sitting at a desk or from the trenches of social media," Santos added, alluding to Uribe, now a senator, and other opposition leaders who have used social media networks such as Twitter to criticize the talks.
