FARC, Colombia lay down arms after truce goes into effect

http://www.dw.com

An indefinite truce between the government in Bogota and Colombia's largest rebel group has gone into effect. It comes after the Colombian government and FARC agreed on a historic peace agreement last week.
The permanent and definitive ceasefire went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday (0500 UTC) and ended a 52-year-old war between the Colombian state and Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), after the two sides agreed last week on a historic peace agreement.
FARC supremo Rodrigo Londono gave the ceasefire order from Havana, where the two sides conducted four years of peace negotiations.
"Never again will parents be burying their sons and daughters killed in the war," said Londono, who is also known as Timochenko. "All rivalries and grudges will remain in the past."
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos announced on Friday the military would cease hostilities on Monday.This means nothing more and nothing less than the end of the FARC as an armed group," Santos said, adding that the final peace deal would be signed in Colombia. "The children and youth of our country have never known a single day without the violence of the conflict. Neither have the adults."

China will get involved if India foments Balochistan trouble: Chinese think tank

http://www.hindustantimes.com

China will have “to get involved” if any Indian “plot” disrupts the $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in restive Balochistan, an influential Chinese think tank has warned India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reference to Balochistan in his Independence Day speech is the “latest concern” for China and among its scholars, Hu Shisheng, the director of the Institute of South and Southeast Asian and Oceanian Studies at the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR), told IANS in a freewheeling interview.
The researcher, at one of China’s most powerful think tanks, which is affiliated with the ministry of state security, also said India’s growing military ties with the US and its changed attitude on the disputed South China Sea are ringing alarm bells for China.
“The latest concern for China is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech from the Red Fort in which he referred to the issues like Kashmir (occupied by Pakistan) and Balochistan,” Hu said.
“It could be regarded as a watershed moment in India’s policy towards Pakistan. Why Chinese scholars are concerned is because this is for the first time India has mentioned it,” he added.
