HAVANA — Cuba has offered Colombia 1,000 medical school scholarships to support a peace accord in which the South American country’s largest rebel army will relinquish its weapons, officials announced on Thursday.

The scholarships will be distributed mostly to members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and those affected by the decades-long conflict, said Jose Luis Ponce, Colombia’s Cuban ambassador. He said the move would help soldiers reintegrate into society.
