The plan to sign a peace agreement early next year to end the more than 50-year civil war in Colombia appears to be in jeopardy. Earlier this week, a senior Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) negotiator, Jesus Santrick, said the negotiations between the government and the FARC will not produce a peace accord by the March 23 deadline, blaming the government for its delay. 

This news does not come as a surprise. Frank Mora, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Western Hemisphere Affairs, told The Cipher Brief last month that, while he was confident the conflict would end relatively soon, it would probably happen beyond the deadline.
