Colombia - UN - Nomination of Jean Arnault as the UN secretary-general’s special representative (March 9, 2016)
This mission will benefit from Mr. Arnault’s enormous experience. Formerly the UN secretary-general’s special representative to Georgia, Afghanistan, Burundi and Guatemala, Mr. Arnault has, since August 2015, served as his delegate on end-of-conflict issues within the Colombian peace process.
France renews its support for this peace process, which was instituted in Cuba in late 2012. It hopes that a final ceasefire between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia will be swiftly concluded, so that the UN mission can be deployed there without delay.
