Baku-APA. Colombia’s Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguín on Tuesday said it was up to the country’s FARC guerrillas and the political forces that campaigned against a hard-fought peace deal to take the next steps and resolve a looming crisis, APA reports quoting AFP.
 
 
 
Renegotiating the peace deal is “not the government’s responsibility anymore at this time,” she said at a press conference. “The responsibility for peace, and that the country can live in peace, is with the Colombians and political movements that mobilized against the deal.”
 
 
On Sunday, Colombians narrowly rejected a peace pact with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, that negotiators in Havana had been hammering out for almost four years.
