“China Has Played An Active Role in Colombia’s Peace Process”
– An Interview with the Ambassador of Colombia to China Oscar Rueda
RARELY do we hear so much news from one country in just a few days. On September 26, the Colombian government signed a historic peace deal with the FARC guerrillas. On October 2, this deal was surprisingly rejected by a plebiscite. Then, on October 7, it was announced that the President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos had won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Meanwhile, in October Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made an official visit to the South American country to reaffirm China’s support for the peace process. We interviewed the new Ambassador of Colombia to China, Mr. Oscar Rueda, to get his thoughts on Colombia’s recent developments.
