In November 2016 in Havana, Cuba, the final agreement between the Colombian government and the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces – People’s Army, FARC-EP, to end the conflict and create lasting and lasting peace was a reality. In Colombia and the international community, and especially in Latin America and the Caribbean, it is of paramount importance for its impact on the reduction of violence and for a new example of the possibility of peace through dialogue.
At the five-year expiration of this agreement, we reaffirm our full compliance with the agreement and take the most effective measures to guarantee the protection of the lives of former guerrillas, community leaders and human rights defenders.
Cuba’s position on the Colombian civil conflict is principled and widely accepted. Our country has supported and will continue to push for a negotiated political solution.
We firmly believe that the search for peace in Colombia should be a priority for this country and that those efforts should have the support of other countries in the region and other latitudes.
Cuba is Colombia’s brother, and has always been a peaceful country.
