Colombia's peace deal with FARC wanes one year on
Date created : Latest update :
Colombia marks the one-year anniversary of its peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. The historic agreement putting an end to 53 years of armed conflict was signed by President Juan Manuel Santos and leftist guerrillas. The landmark achievement laid out objectives for durable peace, including the demobilisation of the FARC fighters. Despite the agreement, which in turn led to the former FARC rebels forming a political party, drug trafficking and criminal activity have not completely abated. FRANCE 24's François Wibaux reports.
