Colombia's peace accord with FARC rebels is the "best possible" deal to end a half-century of war and cannot be rehashed if voters reject it, the government's chief negotiator warns.De la Calle, 70, led the government delegation at four years of peace talks in Havana with negotiators from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).The process led to a peace accord that was agreed last month and signed on Monday by President Juan Manuel Santos and FARC leader Timoleon "Timochenko" Jimenez. The FARC's 7,000 fighters must now come out of their jungle camps and disarm. Colombian authorities estimate the territorial and ideological conflict has killed 260,000 people, left 45,000 missing and uprooted 6.9 million.Two opinion surveys by pollsters Datexco and Ipsos Napoleon Franco, published on Monday, indicated the 'Yes" vote will win in Sunday's referendum by a strong margin of around 20 percent.
