Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart issued the following statement regarding the ongoing situation in Colombia.
"I am deeply concerned by the violence occurring in Colombia, including the tragic loss of life. President Duque publicly has committed to hearing the concerns of protesters and arriving at just solutions for the people of Colombia. However, reports indicate that agitators from terrorist groups such as ELN and the FARC are seizing the opportunity to sow chaos, division, and violence. Those peacefully protesting have the right to do so. I commend President Duque for his efforts to preserve the rule of law in Colombia."
