    The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, says it is open to a ceasefire with the government, as long as both sides lay down their weapons. But Colombia's president has already rejected a ceasefire proposal from the rebel movement even though the government and FARC begin direct negotiations next month aimed at ending their decades long conflict. Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo has been speaking with FARC commander Andres Paris in Havana, Cuba.
