European Union highlights the incorporation of Chile into the European Fund for Peace in Colombia

Thursday, November 22, 2018

Since the beginning of negotiations to achieve peace between the Colombian government and the FARC, Chile has played an important role in the process, first as a guarantor country and later as a member of the UN mission to implement the agreements signed between the two parties.

In addition, Chile is currently a guarantor country in the dialogue with the National Liberation Army (ELN).

In addition, Chile decided to be the first Latin American country to join two initiatives to provide funds for the post-conflict process between the FARC and Colombia: the UN Multidonor Fund for post-conflict, and the European Union Trust Fund, which was made official at the beginning of November this year, when Colombia's Foreign Minister, Carlos Holmes Trujillo, visited our country and met with Chile's Foreign Minister, Roberto Ampuero.

Chile's decision to join the EU Trust Fund was highlighted today by the European Union in the framework of the third strategic board of the European Fund.

This initiative, created in December 2016 within the framework of the agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC, aims to support projects related to post-conflict stabilization.
