Ambassador Cohen Delivers Remarks at a Briefing on the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia


“Over the past two years, Colombians have put aside over a half century of fighting, held peaceful and inclusive elections, stood up transitional justice institutions, and extended development and governance to remote areas of the country. We believe the UN Verification Mission in Colombia has been vital to this success, and we welcome the Colombian government’s support for the UN. Despite this progress, now is not the time to become complacent.”
