Senator from Colombia on peace mission in Bern

Colombian Senator Piedad Córdoba appeared in Bern on Monday to seek international support in ending the armed conflict plaguing her homeland.

Córdoba suggested the exchange of political prisoners as a solution. The 55-year-old made a name for herself by negotiating the release of hostages held by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

“It is important that the international community be aware of the grave consequences of the armed conflict in Colombia,” Córdoba told the Swiss News Agency.

Asked about the role of Switzerland, Córdoba said that the nation had played a key part in earlier mediations until the government in Bogotá opted to do without Switzerland’s assistance.
