“Challenges ahead are enormous” implementing Colombia peace deal

“Enormous challenges” lie ahead for the Colombian people and their international partners in turning the historic deal with FARC rebels into a lasting peace.

That’s the view of Jean Arnault who is tasked with leading the UN Mission there to monitor and verify the laying down of arms by rebel fighters.

He was speaking at the end of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates which took place last week in the Colombian capital, Bogotá.
