28 September, 2016 - by Martina Anderson MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has welcomed EU moves to change FARC's international classification in recognition of the peace deal to end the decades long conflict in Colombia. 

Ms Anderson said; 

"I welcome the historic peace accord between FARC and the Colombian government which brings to an end one of the world's longest running conflicts. 

"Sinn Féin have been involved in assisting and promoting the Colombian peace process for many years. 

"The international community have a responsibility to encourage the peace process in Colombia as it continues to develop. 

"EU moves to remove FARC from what it calls its 'terror' list are a welcome step in building international support for the peace process. 

"Sinn Féin will continue to support efforts to secure a just and lasting peace in Colombia."
