France: The FARC are a terrorist group as long as they do not free hostages

France on Tuesday said that removing the rebel Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) from the list of terrorist of terrorist groups operating worldwide is not appropriate, as long as the organization does not "release all of the hostages."

"This does not seem appropriate as long as the hostages held by the FARC are not released," said the spokesman of the French Foreign Minister Pascale Andréani.

Last Friday, following the release by the FARC of Colombian hostages Clara Rojas and Consuelo González, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez asked "the governments in the continent (Latin America) and Europe to remove the FARC and the (rebel) National Liberation Front (ELN) from the list of the terrorist groups, as such a list exists for one reason only, namely pressure from the United States," AFP quoted.
