Colombian leader tells UN: 'One fewer war on planet'

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos addresses the United Nations General Assembly General Debate at the United Nations in New York“Today I have come to the United Nations to announce, with my full voice and heart, that the war in Colombia is over,” Santos said in an address to the General Assembly of his government’s conflict with Marxist rebels. Addressing the General Assembly on the International Day of Peace, Santos had earlier presented a copy of the agreement, wrapped in the Colombian flag, to the 15 members of the Security Council, who gave him a standing ovation. Santos launched negotiations with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) after taking office in 2010, with the two sides sealing a deal on August 24 in Havana to end the Americas’ longest conflict, which has claimed 260,000 lives.
