With the Havana pacts, the magna carta became the most advanced of this nation, emphasized the political leader during a commemorative event at the Externado University for the five years of that historic agreement.
In this sense, he explained that the fight against drug trafficking and poverty, the recognition of ethnic communities, the agrarian reform and the defense of human rights appear in the pact.
He assured that Colombia has been weaving peace for a decade, referring to the years of negotiations and talks and the five years elapsed since its signing.
In this regard, he pointed out that the population is demanding in the streets the implementation of the final agreement, for which he urged to put it into practice in a comprehensive manner.
The peace negotiations and dialogues between the government of Juan Manuel Santos and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army concluded in 2016 with the signing of the pact that put an end to a long armed conflict.
This historic agreement was signed in Cartagena on September 26, 2016, but had to be endorsed in a plebiscite in which citizens would vote Yes or No.
