Wednesday, March 23, 2016
Today is March 23, it is the date we have been counting down to for the last 6 months when officials from both the FARC and the Colombian government agreed a peace agreement would be signed (they have been working on this agreement since 2012). Today is March 23 and a peace agreement is not being signed. However, they are still working on the agreement, and making good progress. U.S. Secretary of State, Senator John Kerry earlier this week visited with those in the Peace Talks to assist and support the progress. There is not a new date set yet for the signing.
