Michael Camilleri, director del Programa de Estado de Derecho del Diálogo Interamericano, participó en el programa de “Semana en Vivo” el 17 de Mayo sobre las relaciones EEUU-Colombia, la política de drogas y la cooperación en el tema de seguridad entre los dos países
In early May, an employee of the United Nations was kidnapped in Colombia by the FARC rebel group during a visit by the U.N. Security Council to support the country’s recent peace accord. The captors are part of a unit of the FARC that has refused to disarm as part of last year’s peace deal. The following week, eight people were kidnapped by the ELN rebel group, but were later released. How is the implementation of the peace accords between the government and the FARC rebel group going?
With coca production rising, Venezuela melting down next door, and a Trump administration ambivalent about a peace deal with FARC, the embattled Colombian president has a lot on his plate.
