Spanish term or phrase: ceso en sus puestos a ciertos mandos militares, et
I'm having trouble with the ff sentences. The context is a narrative about the armed conflict in El Salvador.

1) Un golpe de estado militar *ceso en sus puestos a ciertos mandos militares*.

2) Representantes de la guerilla y el gobierno se reunieron en Lima bajo la medicion de la Iglesia con una oferta de Duarte *para plasmar los mismos*.

3) Tuvo lugar una movilizacion de altos mandatarios que tiene uno de sus reflejos en la misiva enviada al ONU *apoyando sus(?) gestion y la de los mandatarios de Mejico y Centroamerica el Secretario de Estado norteamericano y el canciller sovietico reiteraron su apoyo a su gestion y a los mandatarios de Mejico y Centroamerica*. (is there a missing word here?)

4) Los acuerdos delinearon *la recta* final de las negociaciones al establecer los parametros fundamentales para un acuerdo de cese fe fuego.

Would appreciate any help.

Explanation:
"cesó en sus..." ousted
"plasmar..." to carry out the dismissals
"apoyando su gestión..." "...y a la de los mandatarios de México, etc.); there appears to be a punctuation problem, as the para. is not clear.
"la recta final": this is figurative and refers to the "last section, span" (as in a race)

Explanation:
1. ..."lead to the removal of high militry commanders."
2. ..."with an offer by Duarte to put everything on the table".
3. I think there is a mistype in "sus" and should be "su" (singular). I believe there should be a period after "Centroamérica" and start a new sentence with "El Secretario...
4. "The agreements paved the way for the final stage of negotiations..."

I really hope it helps. Good luck,
