Santos slams Duque due to statements about peace in Colombia

The former president, under whose term talks and negotiations with the extinct Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) took place, resulting in the 2016 Peace Agreement, told Caracol Radio that, as a Colombian, it is sad to hear that from his president, especially at the venue where he said it.

He added that the United Nations was created to fight for peace. ‘The UN knows this because it was there and we asked it to be there; it knows everything that has been done and that is why it praises the peace process so much,’ the politician stressed.

In his speech at the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, Duque described the Peace Agreement as weak, and said that more progress has been made in the three years of his administration than in the first 20 months of its implementation. According to Santos, due to his words, he, his government and the country lose credibility.

Following his speech, the Common Alternative Revolutionary Force, resulting from the former FARC-EP after the signing of the peace agreement, reminded Duque that it is not ‘fragile’, it is comprehensive, under Colombian and international community legislation.

Since the signing of the peace agreement, 286 former FARC fighters have been assassinated, most of whom have been killed during the Duque administration, and the cases remain unpunished.
