Prime Minister Erna Solberg commends Norwegian diplomacy efforts in the talks that led to the agreement on a peace agreement in Colombia.

– We have made a tremendous efforts in Norwegian diplomacy to promote and facilitate this. First and foremost it is the parties who have wanted and desired peace who led the effort, the Prime Minister said to the news agency NTB.

She describes the peace process between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrillas as a “fantastic milestone” and expresses the hope that there could be lasting peace in Colombia after more than 50 years of civil war.

– I believe that the agreement could form the basis for lasting peace, but it’s going to be difficult. Reconciliation Processes after having made peace are also tough and difficult, she said.

    La Violencia (The Violence) started April 9th, 1948 to 1958 with the murder of Jorge Eliécer Gaitán Ayala, an Education Minister and Labor Minister; who fought, for the rights of all Colombians!

    Manuel Marulanda Vélez , nicknamed Tirofijo, translated “sure or fixed shot”, continued the guerrilla war against the State, and formed with others Las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or better known as Las FARC.

    From there on with all the other Rebel Groups; and, the drug kingpins to this day, have bled Colombia’s youth on the right, the center, and the left, putting brother against brother! Soldier, Policeman, or Rebel man or woman; they, have the same Mother…Her Name? Colombia!!!!!!!

    Drug cartels? They have no mother, God, nor country…. and their citizenship? Their “passport” reads: “The All American Dollar”!

    I lived in Colombia and saw how brothers and sisters killed one another day after day!!!!!!!!!!!

    The violence there has been perpetrated from the beginning from outside forces “hungry” to control Colombia, and all of Latin America! I will not comment on further with this!

    Let then Norway an outsider be the ONE sent by The Almighty to bring everlasting Peace to my Colombian brothers and sisters! Amen and Amen!!!!!!!!!!!

    And let The Lord open the eyes of my Norwegian brothers and sister to the need of a “banner carrier”; for, the Salvation of this Planet!!!!!!!!!!!

    Godspeed Prime Minister Madam Erna Soldberg, Be You… the One to carry The Banner C.R.E.P. (Clean Renewable Energy Production) to Colombia and the World!
