A Comunes communique specifies that Bachelet reiterated the full support of the United Nations (UN) to the pact that put an end to a long armed conflict, signed in 2016, after four years of negotiations and dialogues between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) and the State.
They discussed concerns about the increase in assassinations and threats against signatories of the agreement, leaders and human rights and environmental defenders in Colombia, the text underlines.
It adds that, according to the UN, the level of impunity in the case of violence against the reincorporated members of the extinct FARC-EP reaches 90 percent.
The document stresses that the Colombian State must show concrete results in the coming months and present a comprehensive, funded program of security guarantees for ex-combatants, vulnerable communities, women and ethnic groups, which must be implemented before August 2022.
Early in that year, Juliette de Rivero, the UN High Commissioner’s representative in Colombia, will present an annual report with a special monitoring of the implementation status of the pact, according to the communiqué.
