Motion text

That this House welcomes the official signing of the peace agreement between the government of Colombia and the FARC-EP and congratulates both sides on reaching this agreement after 52 years of conflict; recognises the ground breaking gender focus of the agreement and the transitional justice element which places the rights of victims at its centre; views with disappointment the result of the plebiscite; welcomes, however, the commitment of both parties to a lasting peace; wishes to show solidarity with the Colombian people who have been publicly demonstrating in such huge numbers in support of the peace agreement and their right to live in peace; further congratulates President Santos in winning the Nobel Peace prize; and highlights that this is awarded in international recognition of the efforts and commitment of the Colombian people and both the government of Colombia and the FARC-EP in achieving this agreement.
