On behalf of the Mexican government, the Foreign Ministry
congratulates the parties involved in the peace process in Colombia for the
major step taken today in Havana, Cuba with the signing of the agreement
between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of
Colombia-People's Army (FARC-EP), which establishes special tribunals,
reparations for war victims and a truth commission, and attempts to ensure that
those affected will not be victimized again.
The agreement is another example of President Juan Manuel
Santos’ firm commitment to reaching a definitive, strong and lasting peace for
the people of Colombia.
Mexico also expressed its appreciation to the guarantor
(Cuba and Norway) and accompanying countries (Venezuela and Chile) for their
role in the process.
Mexico hopes that the efforts made by all parties will lead
to a final agreement of all parties in March 2016, and reiterates its readiness
to continue accompanying the people of Colombia as they move toward this goal.
