Colombia and the EU sign agreement to support peace
Bogota, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) The European Union (EU) and the Government of Colombia signed on Friday an agreement to support the implementation in this country of the peace agreement reached in 2016.
The European Fund for Peace's 12.52 million euro Budget Support for the Social and Economic Reincorporation Policy project focuses on the policy of social reincorporation of former combatants of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People's Army, which have become the Revolutionary Alternative Force of the Common (FARC) political party.
This European support is a consensus commitment, of the 27 Member States of the European Union and also of the European institutions and the European Parliament, which gave unanimous backing to the peace process, referred to by the regional organization.
FARC emphasizes that it has and will comply with what was agreed in Havana, Cuba, to achieve lasting and stable peace in Colombia and in this sense many of its members join the work in different sectors.
However, since the signing of the Final Agreement in 2016, a total of 215 ex-guerrillas who decided to rejoin the new process have been killed.
This same day, the political force denounced the homicide of ex-guerrilla fighter Clever Cantincuz Diaz, whose body was found shot in the farm where he worked, in Tallambi, department of Nariño.
