We express the most effusive congratulations to President Juan Manuel Santos for the Nobel Peace Prize 2016. It is a fair recognition of his commitment to end the conflict with the guerrillas and the full pacification of Colombia.
The Brazilian government hopes that the tribute to President Santos will serve as a stimulus for all political forces and the FARC to pursue with determination the necessary convergence to building lasting peace. Brazil reiterates its willingness to cooperate with Colombia in the effort for national reconciliation.
