MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Navarro’s 19th of April Movement (M19) was the nation’s second largest after the infamous FARC group, which is still struggling to complete its transition to peace. After its demobilization in 1990, M19 became a political party.
"One way or another, Fidel was an architect of armed uprisings but also of peace processes," Antonio Navarro Wolff said.
Antonio Navarro said he owed a lot to Fidel Castro’s support when the Colombian guerrilla fighter received treatment in Havana after an assassination attempt on him in 1985.
"He was wise enough to realize … that political talks and elections were the way forward," Navarro stressed. "He left … knowing that the Cuban example would never work in Latin America."
