EU Vows to Stand with Colombia in Post-Conflict Period

BOGOTA – Colombia can count on support from the European Union as Bogota works to implement the peace agreement it is expected to reach with FARC rebels, the EU’s top foreign policy official said on Thursday.

“You have a great responsibility on your shoulders, we also feel a responsibility to accompany you, and again you will have us by your side all the way,” Federica Mogherini said during a joint press conference with Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin.

“Colombia is the Latin American country with which the EU has maintained the most frequent exchanges at the highest possible level. We met five times in the last year with (President Juan Manuel) Santos. And this is a sign of friendship, proof that we are very close partners,” Mogherini said.

The EU “obviously has a very high interest” in the successful completion of the peace process, in addition to the benefits that it will bring for the country itself, the end of the armed conflict will have a positive impact on trade and economic links between Colombia and the European bloc, she said.
