U.S. to Drop Colombian Rebel Group FARC From Terrorist List to Bolster Five-Year-Old Pact

1 min read

The Biden administration will get rid of a former Colombian rebel team from a list of foreign terrorist businesses, a evaluate intended to demonstrate American aid for a fragile peace settlement with the guerrillas in Colombia, explained U.S. and congressional officers with knowledge of the coming announcement.

The officers mentioned the shift could occur no later on than Nov. 30, coinciding with the 5-yr anniversary of the historic peace accord between then-President Juan Manuel Santos and rebels of the Groundbreaking Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Negotiated with U.S. aid, the arrangement ended a 52-yr-conflict and resulted in Mr. Santos winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
