White House continues to back Colombia accord

Friday, October 7, 2016

The White House has no intention of pulling back or shifting nearly $400 million in aid to help Colombia’s peace effort despite its citizen’s rejection of a U.S.-supported deal struck by the Colombian government and rebel leaders.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that the United States has been supportive of the Colombian government’s effort to end the longest-running civil conflict in the hemisphere for over a decade and will continue that support into this next chapter.
