He called them a "corrupt pact" and a "farce" on the occasion of the 29 anniversary of the agreements on Jan. 16.
The NGO Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) urged Salvador's President Nayib Bukele to desist from using "pejorative language" in reference to the 1992 Peace Accords which ended 12 years of civil war.
On December 18, Bukele said that the agreements did not bring any benefits and only represented a negotiation between two leaders. His words took place in El Mozote where one of the cruelest massacres occurred.
Achieved under the auspices of the United Nations (UN), the peace accords were signed between the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) and the Salvadorean government in Mexico on January 16, 1992.
A Truth Commission was established with a mandate to investigate human rights violations committed during the civil war. The accords also opened paths for reforms to the Constitution, the justice system, and the electoral system.
