Peace agree­ment signed

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Colom­bia’s gov­ern­ment and its largest rebel group signed a new, mod­i­fied peace ac­cord in Havana on Satur­day fol­low­ing the sur­prise re­jec­tion of an ear­lier deal by vot­ers in a ref­er­en­dum. The lat­est agree­ment aims to ad­dress some of the con­cerns of op­po­nents of the orig­i­nal ac­cord, who said the deal was too le­nient on a rebel group that had kid­napped and com­mit­ted war crimes. “The new deal is an op­por­tu­nity to clear up doubts, but above all to unite us,” said gov­ern­ment ne­go­tia­tor Hum­berto de la Calle.
