FARC Rebels Ratify Peace Agreement

IAS Prelims 2023

The FARC rebels have ratified the peace pact with the Colombian government to end 52 years of civil war.

The accord establishes a timetable for the FARC to lay down its arms and provides for international verification of compliance.

The peace accord was initiated last month in Havana.

Colombians will go to the polls October 2 for a referendum on the peace accord.
