(OSRSG-CAAC) – The UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui, travelled to Havana on Sunday to witness the signing of the agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia-Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP) to separate and reintegrate children associated with the FARC-EP. “I feel privileged to be here today with the Colombians and welcome this important commitment, which puts the issue of children at the heart of the peace process and promises to change their lives. This is an urgently needed step for children who have never known a country at peace,” said Leila Zerrougui.
