China Congratulates Colombia on FARC Peace Deal

BEIJING – China congratulated Colombia on Thursday on the official end of the conflict with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrilla and hoped the peace agreements are fully and successfully implemented.

On Tuesday, the Colombian government and the FARC officially ended a 50-year armed conflict in a ceremony attended by President Juan Manuel Santos and FARC’s top leader, Rodrigo Londoño.

“We express our congratulations for this major progress in the peace process,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a press conference.

The Chinese spokesperson also commended the “unremitting efforts” made by various parties during the negotiations and implementation of the peace agreements.

“We firmly support the peace process in Colombia and we hope that the new peace agreements will be implemented fully and successfully,” he added.

China hopes that “the people can usher in immediate comprehensive peace and national reconciliation,” Lu said.
