Colombia's Santos meets rival in race to save peace deal

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos (R) welcomes Colombian former president Andres Pastrana during a meeting at Narino Palace in Bogota on October 5, 2016Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said Wednesday peace with the FARC rebels is “close,” but his top opponent demanded an overhaul of a “weak” deal rejected by voters in a referendum. Seeking to salvage the peace process on which he has staked his legacy, Santos held a meeting with his predecessor and former boss, Alvaro Uribe, who has branded him a traitor for negotiating with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Santos — who also held talks with former president Andres Pastrana (1998-2002), another leading opponent of the deal — tried to sound upbeat after the meetings at the presidential palace.
