"True peace is built on the basis of truth. The Holy Father has encouraged Colombians, and really all people, to further that peace process under the principle of truth. With that principle comes forgiveness and reconciliation because true forgiveness also means knowing and understanding the full truth.”

Some of the key negotiations points between the  government and FARC rebels include drug trafficking, rural development, land and the security of farming families.
