Colombia – Agreement between the Colombian authorities and the FARC (Havana, July 12, 2015)


France welcomes the agreement reached in Havana on July 12 between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP).

This represents a significant step forward toward the conclusion of a final, just and lasting agreement for all Colombians.

During his visit to Colombia in 2013, Laurent Fabius stressed that France stood alongside Colombia in its efforts to reach an agreement. As Prime Minister Manuel Valls reaffirmed during his meeting with President Santos in Bogota on June 25, France stands ready to do its part to facilitate the restoration of civil peace, following a conflict that has lasted more than 60 years.
