United Nations chief heading to Colombia this weekend to support peace

End in Colombia ceasefire with ELN without agreement on renewal

"The National Government was always willing to extend the ceasefire with that organization and negotiates a new one". The attacks come after the end of an agreement between the government and the rebels.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is heading to Colombia this weekend to support peace efforts amid growing concerns about the integration of the country's largest rebel group and new attacks by the last rebel holdouts.

Peace talks taking place taking place between the Colombian government and the last remaining armed rebel group in the country, the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Quito, Ecuador, were broken off by Bogota Wednesday in response to ELN attacks as the existing ceasefire between the two parties, which went into effect on October 1, expired. Members expressed regret at the ELN attacks and said they hope the government and rebel group will resume work on renewing and strengthening the cease-fire.

According to a statement from the United Nations mission in Colombia, the assistance of the vice president to the special session of the Security Council reaffirms the Bogota government's will with the implementation of the Peace Agreement. Colombia's military attributed the attack to the ELN.

The attacks threaten future negotiations for peace but the negotiator of the group said the attacks happened in complex situations of war.

"I would like to assure you that the government is not walking away from peace", Naranjo told the council. "We are peacemakers and peacebuilders".

In a televised address, Gustavo Bell said both sides will need to act quickly because part of the United Nations commission overseeing the prior, temporary bilateral cease-fire that ended Tuesday has already begun to disband.

The possibility that the recent wave of violence might continue or expand casts a shadow over the future of the ELN peace process.

ELN guerillas were accused of violating the accord in two separate incidents that left a total of 14 people dead, including an indigenous leader. The government in turn vowed to improve conditions for jailed rebels as well as boost protections for leftist activists in areas dominated by the ELN.

The government has also deployed 2,000 troops to Nariño's important port city of Tumaco to quell the fighting following the ceasefire.
