UN concern over ‘enemies of peace’ in Colombia

7

UN chief Antonio Guterres expressed con-cern Tuesday at the risk posed by “enemies of peace” in Colombia, which is marking the fifth anni-versary of historic peace accords that ended a near six-decade con-flict.

On the same day, the US gov-ernment notified Congress that it will remove the now-defunct FARC guerrilla group, which lay down arms after the deal, from its official terror group designation.

November 24 marks five years since the government and Marx-ist guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed deal to end Latin America’s longest-running inter-nal conflict.

Guterres accompanied Colom-bian President Ivan Duque on a visit Tuesday to Dabeiba, a mountainous, rural municipality in the northern Antioquia de-partment to see first-hand “the achievements of peace.”—AP
