UN chief highlights progress of peace agreement in Colombia

Bogota, Jul 6 (Prensa Latina) United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres acknowledged the progress in the implementation of essential aspects of the Final Peace Agreement in Colombia, the Verification Mission of that multilateral organization confirmed on Thursday.

In his latest report on the Mission, which covers from March 27 to June 26, 2023, Guterres “encourages the Colombian Government continue to persevere, both in its implementation and in the negotiations to address violence and deepen the scope of peace.”

The UN chief also welcomed the progress made on several issues of the 2016 Agreement between the State and the former Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) to approve essential policies and laws and allocate resources to accelerate its implementation.

Guterres highlighted the agreements on a ceasefire and society’s participation in the negotiation table between the Government and the National Liberation Army.

He emphasized that peace, in general, and the Final Agreement, in particular, are priorities of the National Development Plan, approved by Congress and drawn up with the broad participation of Colombian society.

The UN official especially mentioned the legislative progress in implementing the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform, such as approving the Agrarian Jurisdiction and recognizing the peasants’ rights in the Constitution.
