Petro, a former member of the M-19 rebel movement, has vowed to seek "absolute peace" by resuming talks with the National Liberation Army (ELN) rebels. To this end, the 2016 Peace Agreement for Colombia's Ex-Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) fighters has been implemented to negotiate the surrender of criminal gangs in exchange for reduced punishment.

His predecessor, the conservative Ivan Duque, broke peace talks with the ELN after the 2019 car bomb attack on a police academy in Bogota that killed 22 people. Petro did not name the suspected perpetrators of Friday's attack, but according to security sources, the now-disbanded FARC is active in the so-called dissident area of the insurgent movement. At the same time, according to the government, the dissident groups have rejected the peace agreement reached by their former leadership and have counted some 2,400 fighters in their ranks. Several famous commanders have recently been killed and many are fighting across the border in Venezuela.
