Colombia – Peace talks (February 7, 2017)


France welcomes the launch of public peace talks between the Colombian government and the ELN rebel group on February 7 in Quito with the aim of reaching a peace agreement.

A few months after the signing of the agreement between the government and the FARC on November 24, 2016, these discussions bring Columbia even closer to a definitive, comprehensive peace.

As President Hollande and the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development reiterated during their visits to Colombia in recent months. France stands with the Colombian people on the path of peace.
