On 30 November Colombia’s Congress approved a historical peace agreement between the government and the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrilla group, which was signed on 24 November by president Juan Manuel Santos and FARC commander Rodrigo Londoño alias “Timochenko” in Bogotá. 

 

The passage of the agreement signals the start of a new and challenging stage for Colombia—implementation of the peace deal itself—which will take place for the foreseeable future.
