Canada is committing nearly $60-million to help support the implementation of Colombia’s peace process after the government and the country’s largest rebel group recently agreed to a historic ceasefire to end one of the world’s longest-running wars.
Although International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau says Canada supports the peace process between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as FARC, she sidestepped endorsing the guerrilla group’s eventual formation of a political party. As a part of the final deal, FARC will demobilize and form a left-wing political party after the peace process is complete.
