Colombia: new agreement with the FARC aimed at giving peace a second chance – Reminder of the statement issued by Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (November 13, 2016)


France welcomes the fact that the Colombian government and the FARC have been able to reach a new peace agreement, following the consultative referendum in which voters rejected a previous version.

It commends the efforts of all parties to achieve this result, which restores hope for achieving lasting peace for the benefit of all Colombians.

France will stand alongside President Santos, the government and the Colombian people in order to help make this prospect a reality.
