France welcomes the announcement by President Juan Manuel Santos of the decision to suspend the bombing raids against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) for one month.
This decision is a further step toward ending the armed conflict in Colombia. It follows on from the ceasefire observed by FARC since December 18, 2014, and the agreement on mine clearance concluded this week.
France is committed to promoting peace in Colombia. President Hollande reaffirmed our support for this process to President Santos during their meetings on November 7, 2014, and January 26, 2015.
