Europe suspends peace package for Colombia

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

The European Union on Monday suspended the planned ratification of post-conflict aid to Colombia after the country’s voters turned down a peace process with the country’s largest rebel group FARC.

According to Spain’s Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia, the EU foreign ministers were scheduled to approve the joint trust fund in the Foreign Affairs Council on Monday, but were forced to postpone this decision after 50.2 percent of Colombia’s voters turned down the peace process in an October 2 referendum.
