UN Security Council Voices Support for Peace Process in Colombia

The UN Security Council on Thursday reiterated its full and unanimous support for the peace process in Colombia.

In a press statement, the council members stressed the importance of ensuring the comprehensive implementation of the Final Peace Agreement.

They welcomed continued momentum on the comprehensive implementation of the agreement including through the approval by the Congress of Colombia of the National Development Plan which includes approval of an “Investment Plan for Peace.”

The council members also welcomed the Colombian government’s efforts to seek broader peace through dialogue and through the continued comprehensive implementation of the peace agreement.

They reaffirmed their commitment to continue working closely with Colombia to support comprehensive implementation of the agreement, as the primary pillar to secure broad and lasting peace and stability in the country, and welcomed the continued commitment of both parties to this end.

In the statement, the council members reiterated their strong concern over the continued threats and violence faced by former combatants and social leaders, and that conflict related violence continues to have a disproportionate impact on women and girls and on indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities.

They also emphasized the importance of strengthening the former combatants’ reintegration process, including through the approval of a sustainability strategy for collective projects and investment in a sustainability fund for the improvement of livelihoods.
