Statement by the spokesperson on EU participation in a Global Demining Initiative for Colombia

The EU is a strong supporter of the peace process in Colombia. Today's launch of the Global Demining Initiative is another important step towards reachinga Peace Agreement and its implementation for the benefit of the people of Colombia

Mines injured hundreds every year in Colombia and create a major challenge to credible peace process and the future of the country.

The population must feel the benefits of peace early on, even while negotiations are still ongoing. The EU already implements several demining initiatives in Colombia and will extend its support together with partners around the globe.
