New UN Mission to Verify Peace Process in Colombia
This new delegation will verify the process of economic, political and social reintegration of the former FARC-EP combatants
The second UN mission for the implementation of the peace process in Colombia will officially begin today with the participation of 120 international observers.
With an initial duration of 12 months, this new delegation will verify the process of economic, political and social reintegration of the former FARC-EP combatants, now turned into the political party Common Alternative Revolutionary Force (FARC).
The first UN mission ceased its work in the South American country last Friday with the total dismantling of the arms delivered by the FARC-EP, those that had been deposited in the concentration zones of normalization, according to the Agreement on the End of the Conflict with the government.
The international observers, who will be present in the surroundings of 26 concentration zones, will verify that the security of the former guerrillas and the communities and social organizations on those territories are guaranteed.
The UN representative in Colombia, Jean Arnault, said in this capital that the bilateral ceasefire between the government and the National Liberation Army (ELN) will also be verified, as it will come into force on October 1 for a period of four months.
