TODAY COLOMBIA NEWS (Bogota) President Juan Manuel Santos on Saturday regretted the death of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and acknowledged his contribution to the efforts to end the armed confrontation in Colombia.

We regret the death of Fidel Castro, we accompany his brother Raul and his family at this time, our solidarity with the Cuban people, the president posted on his Twitter account.

He contributed to ending the Colombian conflict, Santos posted on the social network, where other politicians, such as former Senator Piedad Cordoba, have expressed their sorrow over the Cuban leader’s death on Friday night.

Cuba and Norway have been the guarantors of the peace talks between the Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP), which ended with the recent peace agreement signed by Santos and the chief of that guerrilla movement, Timoleon Jimenez, on Thursday, November 24, at the Colon Theater in this capital.

Commander Fidel Castro!!, you did not just write history!! You are history!!, Cordoba, an outstanding human rights defender posted on the social network.

Thanks Fidel for the huge contribution made to peace in Colombia. He taught us the meaning of the words dignity and sovereignty, Senator Ivan Cepeda said.

After almost four years of talks in the Cuban capital, the Executive and the FARC-EP reached a deal to end the war between the two sides, which has lasted more than 50 years.
