STORYLINE
The head of the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia Jean Arnault said “reintegration in the current circumstances in Colombia is a very complex task, and both sides have an important role to play in completing it successfully.”

Addressing the Security Council today (10 Oct) on the report of the Secretary-General on the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia, the Mission’s chief Jean Arnault said that a heightened subject of concern is the sense of legal uncertainty that remains pervasive among former FARC-EP members.

He said “this is not a situation unique to Colombia. Reconciling peace and justice is everywhere a controversial and emotional issue. To overcome it, the Colombian peace process has sought to innovate by bringing together the full guarantees of due process, victims’ participation and the benefits of restorative sanctions.”

Arnault also noted a positive view of political participation in his country. He mentioned that eight of the ten FARC representatives afforded seats in the two chambers of Congress have assumed their responsibilities and are contributing to the debates and the legislative activities.

Also speaking at the Council, Carlos Holmes Trujillo, the Colombian Minister of Foreign Affairs reiterated his country’s commitment to stabilization and consolidation. He stated that Colombian President Duque is committed to the strengthening of democratic institutions and the rule of law, the generation of greater opportunities for economic development and the sustainability and expansion of social progress.

Trujillo also told the Council that “the fight against criminal economies, in all its forms and manifestations, is a cardinal element of the stabilization of Colombia and the consolidation of peaceful coexistence.”

He added “the National Government is committed to combine, intelligently and responsibly, all available tools and resources, with the framework of the Constitution and the Law, to face his phenomenon, which threatens not only the successful implementation of the Final Agreement, but also the integrity of institutions and citizen security.”

Asked outside of the Council about Colombia’s plan to approach the Venezuelan migrants situation in Colombia, Trujillo noted the document with the plan is almost ready.

He said, “It is practically finished. The document is in the final stage of preparation and it will define a complete public policy at the national level to deal with the migration crisis from Venezuela.”
