The Deputy by the Homeland, Diosdado Cabello Rondón, alluded on Wednesday night to the signing of the Peace Agreement between the Government of Juan Manuel Santos and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army (FARC-EP), which represents the end of the armed conflict of more than 50 years in the neighboring country.

“This week was signed peace in Colombia, with a sector, but it is a very important step, not only for Colombia but for the continent”, expressed Cabello in his weekly program “Con el Mazo Dando” (Hitting with the Hammer), from Zulia state.

In this regard, he noted that the only one who is not interested in peace to be concreted in the neighboring country “Is the narco-paramilitary (Alvaro) Uribe, because he is a soldier of war; that’s what he lives from, that’s his job. ”

The signing of the Peace Agreement took place in the city of Cartagena de Indias and had the presence of Heads of State from the region, including President Nicolas Maduro.

On August 24, the Government of Colombia and the FARC-EP announced the final peace agreement in Havana, Cuba, home of the negotiations in which the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela took a leading role.

However, the Colombian people must approve the agreement by a referendum to be held on October 2nd.
