This process has allowed for the increase of demilitarization of the FARC. There is no bilateral peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC signed to date (Department U. S., 2013). On April 2015, guerrilla forces killed 11 Colombian soldiers in southwest Colombia. The Colombian government forces retaliated with airstrikes that killed 26 guerrilla forces.
