HAVANA (AP) -- Representatives of Colombia's government have put forth a proposal to leftist rebels that would allow victims of the country's armed conflict to be present for peace talks being held in Cuba.

The comments by government negotiator Humberto de la Calle are the first public signal that talks resumed on Tuesday. The two sides announced last week they would restart negotiations following a break for Colombia's presidential election.

De la Calle said in an audio recording released by Colombia's presidency that "we have come to Havana with a concrete proposal to allow for the presence of the victims in the talks."

He said he wants to discuss the details for how such participation would work as part of the talks between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia rebels.
