Since 2012, there have been a talk of a truce between Columbia’s rebel group FARC, and Cuba.   This has been ongoing for three years.  The real beginning of the efforts to stop the violence came from the Colombian president via tweet that he has asked as of the thirtieth of September to suspend the purchasing of guns and ammunition by members of FARC.

They have recently agreed on four main points for the truce political participation of the rebels, land rights, drug trafficking.  Recently, they have added transitional justice for how rebels will be punished for their crimes.

By March 23, 2016, there will be a signed truce.  The rebels have even stated how they would like to the deal finalized before then, but there is still a few kinks that need to be worked out.  The truce has already been making an appearance in the media and all that is left is for the final deal to be brought to the Colombian public for referendum.
