The World : Salvador Rebels Offer Plan

July 13, 1986

Salvadoran rebels offered a negotiating plan for upcoming peace talks that calls for a cease-fire in the civil war and a reorganization of the government to include the guerrillas. The proposals were made by Joaquin Villalobos, a leader of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front, in a broadcast on the rebels' clandestine Radio Venceremos. In a subsequent speech, President Jose Napoleon Duarte ignored Villalobos' plan and reiterated his longstanding policy that the guerrillas must put down their weapons and join the democratic process.
