Colombian rebel group FARC said Sunday it is ready to surrender three captured members of Colombia's security forces to the Red Cross and peace activists.

The two policemen and one soldier were detained on two occasions by FARC rebels earlier this year.

According to Rodrigo Granda, one of the rebel leaders currently in Havana to negotiate peace with the government, his guerrilla organization is waiting for the final green light of the administration of President Juan Manuel Santos to begin the operation leading to the release of the hostages.

According to the rebel leader, the captured members of the security forces "are in good condition and receiving a respectful and dignified treatment."
