Former Argentine President Congratulates Colombia on Cease-Fire Agreement

MADRID – Former Argentine President Eduardo Duhalde on Thursday congratulated Colombia on “finally” achieving a bilateral cease-fire agreement with the FARC after 50 years of armed conflict.

Duhalde attended the presentation of “Consultoria politica,” a book for which former Mexican President Vicente Fox and Ernesto Samper, secretary-general of the Union of South American Nations, or UNASUR, wrote the prologue.

Drug trafficking and the FARC are problems for all of Latin America, not just Colombia, Duhalde said.

The former Argentine president also discussed the importance of the Brexit referendum being held Thursday in the United Kingdom, in which the British people will decide whether to stay or leave the European Union.

Duhalde said Europe had always been an example of unity for many and was in the forefront of the evolution of political systems.

During the book presentation, former Uruguayan President Luis Alberto Lacalle called on current and future leaders to humanize electoral campaigns.

Fox, for his part, said Latin America had learned that the right path to follow was “true democracy” via “hard-fought elections and much sacrifice.”

The book, released in Madrid on Thursday, includes contributions from more than 150 experts from 16 countries.

The project’s preparation was overseen by Madrid’s Camilo Jose Cela University with the goal of helping politicians with governance tasks.
