Statement Regarding Colombian President Santos Receiving Nobel Peace Prize
October 7, 2016
WASHINGTON - Today, Representative Sam Farr (D-Calif.) released the following statement regarding President Juan Manuel Santos receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.
"Congratulations to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. While I’m saddened that Colombian voters recently rejected the peace deal agreed to by the FARC and the Colombian government, I’m encouraged that President Santos remains committed to finding a path to peace. Colombia should be proud and the world needs to know that war and violence can be stopped through diplomatic means. The peace process suffered a setback earlier this week but I hope Colombia moves forward to begin healing wounds and creating a lasting peace. As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Medellin from 1964 to 1966, I’ve maintained a deep connection to Colombia and look forward to the country’s peaceful future."
