Former Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos presents tomorrow, March 26 at 11 am, in the Room of Ambassadors of Casa América his new book The battle for peace, which tells “the tortuous development of a nation, for a long time resigned to war, which discovers the awakening of peace”. Santos uses personal memories to explain in a personal way the road, which put an end to the conflict with the FARC guerrillas, negotiations for which Santos received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016.
“It is the story not only of the peace process that transformed a country, of secret contacts, international implications, difficulties and achievements, but also of the two previous decades in which Colombia oscillated between the war and the negotiated solution. “Says the synopsis of the work. The prologue is written by the former president of the government of Spain, Felipe González.
