The president of Comunes, Rodrigo Londoño, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, spoke Thursday about implementing the Havana Peace Accords in Colombia.
A Comunes communique specifies that Bachelet reiterated the full support of the United Nations (UN) to the pact that put an end to a protracted armed conflict, signed in 2016, after four years of negotiations and dialogues between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People's Army (FARC-EP) and the Colombian Government.
"At 5 AM @TimoComunes met with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights @mbachelet in the framework of the #5AñosDelAcuerdoPorLaVida, the recent participation in the Paris Peace Forum and the upcoming visit of the Secretary-General to Colombia."
The document stresses that the Colombian State must show concrete results in the coming months and present a comprehensive, funded program of security guarantees for ex-combatants, vulnerable communities, women and ethnic groups, which must be implemented before August 2022.
Early in that year, Juliette de Rivero, the UN High Commissioner's representative in Colombia, will present an annual report with special monitoring of the implementation status of the pact, according to the communiqué.
