Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to encourage both the government of the Republic of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to engage in a peace process in order to find a politically negotiated solution to the conflict in Colombia; believes there are ongoing widespread human rights abuses in that country; notes recent indications by the Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos that he is interested in finding a peaceful solution; considers that the United Kingdom and the government of the Republic of Ireland are uniquely placed to support such negotiations, drawing on their experience and being signatories to the international peace treaty, the Good Friday Agreement; and believes that such an initiative could also involve a team nominated by the Northern Ireland Executive and representatives of the other principle parties involved in the peace process.
