The president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, has signed this Friday the so-called ‘total peace’ law that allows the Colombian government to dialogue with armed groups, all this one day after Congress approved it definitively in both chambers.

“There will be people who will negotiate with the government the options to end an insurgent war for many decades, which must end definitively without echoes so that Colombian society is the true owner of the country (…) the real and peaceful democracy that we need So the Law is signed,” Petro said in an act in which he signed the measure, according to a statement from the Presidency.

In addition, the Colombian president has stressed that through the application of this norm “there will be people who will negotiate with the justice system the possibility of a peaceful dismantling of crime.”
