The talks were originally scheduled to start next Monday, but were postponed for a week, the statement said, adding the talks would then move to Cuban capital Havana.

On Aug. 27, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos confirmed the beginning of peace talks between his government and the FARC guerrilla group to end internal armed conflicts that have lasted for some 50 years.

Norway and Cuba would participate as hosts of the talks, while Venezuela and Chile would be “attendants,” Santos said.

Venezuela’s Ambassador to the Organization of American States Roy Chaderton would represent President Hugo Chavez in the peace talks, he added.
