Ruben Blades Expresses Confidence in Seeing Colombia in Peace

Panamanian singer Ruben Blades here today expressed his confidence and faith in seeing a Colombia in peace but for that, he said, it requires a lot of will, to believe in this country and its capacities.

“I remain fully optimistic that there could be a fix, but it is necessary to invoke, as Lincoln said, to the better angels of national character. There can be no losers, the winner is Colombia”, said the artist in a meeting with the press.

According to Blades, it is important to reach a political solution. Sometimes it is difficult to separate the quarrels of the conditions that lead to such separations, he added.

I hope that Colombia is set above all things, it is not about winners or losers, he said.
