As a result of the Final Agreement, the FARC party emerged, it is denouncing today that the current government of Ivan Duque is shattering what was achieved due to the growing number of muerders of former combatants, social leaders and indigenous people, among other breaches.
At a press conference last Thursday, Cuban Vice Foreign Minister Rogelio Sierra stressed that Cuba decided to maintain for the time being its status as guarantor of the peace agreements between the government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP).
The decision responds to multiple requests in that country and from the international community about the convenience of continuing to play the role of guarantor of the peace processes in Colombia, he said.
Cuba has always acted with impartiality, transparency, discretion and at the request of both parties, with the aim of helping the shared desire for comprehensive peace in Colombia, he added. (Prensa Latina)
