A representative of El Salvador’s leftist rebels said a top government official has privately expressed the government’s willingness to negotiate the release of President Jose Napoleon Duarte’s daughter. Hector Oqueli, an official of the Revolutionary Democratic Front, said he met with Communications Minister Julio Rey Prendes for an hour in Mexico City on Sunday, but Rey Prendes, upon returning to San Salvador, would neither confirm nor deny that the meeting took place. A group identified as the Pedro Pablo Castillo Front has claimed responsibility for the abduction last week of Ines Guadalupe Duarte Duran.
