BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos has begun exploratory peace talks with leftist ELN rebels, the government said on Tuesday, just days before voters go to the polls in one of the tightest presidential election battles in decades.
The center-right government said it started discussing an agenda at early in the year to begin official negotiations to end a half century war with the National Liberation Army (ELN).
