China Today (English) - - INTERNATIONAL INTERACTION - By MICHAEL ZÁRATE

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.
