Military observers from Uruguay are ready to go to Colombia to monitor the newly-achieved ceasefire between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrilla group, Uruguay’s Deputy Defense Ministry Jorge Menendez told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The government of Colombia announced on Wednesday that a deal had been reached on a ceasefire with FARC.

"This is a political mission, there is a display of quotas, unarmed personnel who will carry out tasks of observation and verification of the ceasefire," Menendez said.

The Colombian government and FARC have been engaged in peace talks since November 2012 and have reached a number of important agreements including on landmine removal, land reform, transitional justice and an end to illegal drug trafficking.

FARC was formed in 1964 as the military wing of Colombia's Communist Party.
