Today, the president of Colombia signed a peace commitment with the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). This agreement is a huge step towards reaching peace in an area that has not been peaceful in a long time. The FARC is the longest running insurgency in Latin America.
Juan Manuel Santos, the President of Colombia, was very excited to announce this breakthrough. This peace talk will help to reverse decades of militant actions from the FARC. Even though ceasefires have been engaged previously, President Santos is optimistic that this agreement will work this time.
