BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia's peace negotiators and Marxist FARC rebels will discuss a bilateral ceasefire as soon as possible, an agenda item that could lead to an end to five decades of war, Post-conflict Minister Oscar Naranjo said on Thursday.

The government of President Juan Manuel Santos has been in peace talks with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, for more than two years in hopes of ending a conflict that has killed more than 200,000 people since it began in 1964.
