Colombian president to meet rival on failed peace deal

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos speaks during a press conference at Narino Palace in Bogota on October 3, 2016Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos will meet his top rival, Alvaro Uribe, on Wednesday to discuss salvaging a peace deal with the FARC rebels after voters rejected it in a referendum. Santos, who has staked his legacy on ending the half-century conflict with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), will sit down with Uribe, his former boss and current nemesis, at the presidential palace at 11:30 am (1630 GMT), officials said. The high-stakes meeting comes after Colombians on Sunday narrowly voted against a deal Uribe had condemned as too lenient on the leftist guerrillas — throwing the nearly four-year-old peace process into disarray and giving the former president a major victory.
